Harrison Hot Springs Elementary students got into the Halloween spirit this week with their second annual Pumpkin Run.

On Thursday (Oct. 24), students from all grades went out to race their way through Harrison’s suburbs and count pumpkins in the process.

The three fastest intermediate students went home with first, second and third place pumpkins for the race, while the rest of the school had to write down the number of pumpkins they saw on their run to be entered in a draw for one of their own.

Wearing orange was encouraged, with many students choosing to put on their Orange Shirt Day t-shirts or Halloween-themed shirts.
