 Find a pumpkin? Take a picture where you found it and tag @LSArtGlass on social media for a chance to win a FREE Flamework class!


Clue history:

  1. Found! In Lester Park Playground, behind a burned birch hidden under a few leaves.
    "Aye, Sargent! Your first pumpkin is hidden in the kid-friendly head of a beautiful hiking trails system, alongside a river connecting greater Lakewood Township to the Great Lakes."
  2. Found! In Morgan Park's playground inside the top of a jungle gym. Without a pier, but named after a Pierpont, this model city was seen nationally as the premier company town before being ceded to the City of Duluth in 1933. After looking up the history, find your next pumpkin where today's youth go to play!
  3. Found! In Rice's Point, behind educational signs about water pollutants. Underneath one of Duluth's three main bridges, this point of entry to the great lakes is a relatively newer one. For your next pumpkin, look where the land meets the water!
  4. Found! In the Sister Cities Park, inside one of the plaques explaining the history of the artwork. This time, celebrate Duluth's connection to the rest of the world in culture, rather than water. While hunting for your next pumpkin, learn about five of Duluth's close relatives!
  5. Found! In Morley Heights Park, inside a tree. A tiny park with a big impact — this location was named after someone who was once the biggest hardware wholesaler in the country — further cementing our Zenith City's place in history.
  6. Found! In Chester Bowl, in the rock wall of the creek bridge. One of Duluth's best traits is our ability to work around the natural beauty of our countless lakes and streams. Your pumpkin, this time, uses this to its advantage — visit where the city gathers to play, hike, fish, and ski, but look where the creek meets the cars!
  7. Found! At the fork of the lakewalk near Holiday, at the very end of I-35. North or South, trains or trees, your next pumpkin loves both of these! Take a holiday to the fork between Hillside and Lakeside.
  8. Found! On top of the iconic Rose Garden rotunda. On this beautiful Duluth day, visit the place where flowers bloom, children explore, and families become one. Your next pumpkin is hidden at one of the most beautiful destinations in Duluth!
  9. Found! At The Depot next to the statue of Albert Woolson. This Duluth landmark is the second of its kind to sit in this location, but if you find the seated man who was the last of his kind, the pumpkin won’t be far behind.
  10. Check back to see where the rest have been hidden!
