Annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest

  • DryTown Water Park (map)

Join us at the DryTown Water Park for our annual underwater pumpkin carving contest! Ever wondered what it was like to carve a pumpkin in your scuba suit? Probably not, but now you can find out!

Pumpkins and carving tools will be provided. Non-divers are welcome and there will be a surface pumpkin decorating contest for kids. If you want to dive, you are required to bring your certification card. Divers also need to bring their own gear, including tanks, but the water is heated, so you probably do not need a wetsuit. Cost is $5 per person paid to the City of Palmdale; bring cash. You can sign up through the website at

Prizes will be given out to the best themed pumpkin and the best overall. Come with your creative caps on!
