The Great Pumpkin Pin Search

Sponsor: Clearpath IT Solutions
Prize:  $300

The kick-off to the Morton Pumpkin Festival is The Great Pumpkin Pin Search, a treasure hunt for the official festival pin that begins 4 weeks prior to the festival. This time-honored tradition has a huge following and generates a great deal of excitement from Mortonites each year.

Clues will be released this year on Fridays at 5:00 pm on August 17, August 24, August 31, and September 7. The clues will be posted here on our website, on our Facebook page at, and on the door of the Morton Chamber of Commerce office. The clues will also be posted in the Morton Times News during the following week.

The person who finds the pin wins $300 and an invitation to participate in the Grand Opening Ceremony of the Morton Pumpkin Festival. For more information about this special event, go to
