Fall festivities were in full swing at Auburn as students gathered on Cater Lawn for this year's pumpkin palooza. The fun began for after students after they scanned their TigerCards, allowing their admittance into the patch.
There were pumpkins, pumpkin spiced coffee, trending music and decoration stations available to students. At the decoration stations, students were encouraged to paint and glitter their pumpkins to their heart’s content.
All of the four hundred pumpkins were provided for the event and brought to the University by local pumpkin patch owner Rob Crosby. To steer from a traditional fall event UPC decided to do away with a Jack-O-Lantern carving station.
“Pumpkin Palooza already feels like an Auburn tradition, and having it on Cater Lawn makes it feel more like we’ve been doing this forever,” said Special Projects Committee member Kendall Adkison.
