People from clubs all over campus came to compete in the Riverside City College pumpkin carving competition as part of  the Halloween Town event.

Halloween Town is an annual event, this year on Oct. 24, organized by Associated Students of RCC where over 600 children come to dress up, participate in games and go trick or treating.

ASRCC also hosted a scarecrow competition Oct. 21 in conjunction with  pumpkin carving on Oct. 23 as a way to use student participation for making decorations for the Halloween Town main event.

In the Pumpkin Carving Competition, participants compete for cash prizes as a club or organization.

Pumpkins were carved into various characters and decorated using paints, posters and creative juices in order to win favor from the judges and a place in the art pumpkin patch for Hallowen Town.

The Graphix Club and the Art Club were among the winners this year in categories such as scariest, or most creative.
