Enter your creative Jack O’ Lantern in Ludlow contest

If you have a scary, ugly, funny, unusual or creative Jack O' Lantern, bring it to the gazebo on the Ludlow Village Green (Veterans Memorial Park) on Halloween, Oct. 31, between 4- 5 p.m. to win prizes. LPC TV will film all the lighted Jack O' Lanterns.

Jack O' Lanterns must be entered in the contest at the gazebo steps between 4-5 p.m. for judging and prizes at 5:30 p.m. If you want your Jack O' Lantern back, you may pick it up right after the 6 p.m. parade.

Between now and then LPC TV is holding a 50-50 raffle to benefit its capital campaign, with 200 raffle tickets being sold for $10 each. The drawing will be held when all 200 tickets have been sold. Raffle tickets are available from all LPC TV staff and board members, or by calling 228-8808. If any tickets are still available on Oct. 31, they may be purchased at the gazebo. If all of the 200 tickets are sold by 5 p.m. on Halloween, the drawing will be held then. The best overall Jack O' Lantern will also win a raffle ticket, giving the winner a chance to win up to $500!

For more information on the raffle, contact LPC TV at 228-8808 or For more information on the Jack O' Lantern contest, contact BRACC at or 228-7878.
