MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The City of Prattville kicks off its 3rd annual Parade of Pumpkins Friday!

Carved and decorated pumpkins from folks in the community are on display around the downtown area, along with festive storefronts, seasonal displays, and the new “GLOW” trail that will light up historic downtown Prattville.

This year, those decorated storefronts will be featured in a “Best Storefront Contest” on the City of Prattville’s Facebook page. Voting for that begins Monday. The city is partnering with the Chamber to host “Artists on Main” Tuesday night with pumpkin art and music.
