AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

The glow of more than 400 jack-o-lanterns will light up the courtyard of Auburn University's Dudley Hall as students hold the 24th annual Pumpkin Carve.

Family activities will begin at noon on Friday, Oct. 26, when T-shirts go on sale and visitors can "Pie-a-Professor."

Halloweiners will be sold for lunch at noon and again at 5 p.m., when there will also be a chili cook-off.

Beginning at 3 p.m., pumpkins will go on sale for the public and other activities, such as a pumpkin seed sale, a prize raffle and face painting, will be offered.

At 6 p.m. pumpkin carving by students from the College of Architecture, Design and Construction will end and the pumpkins will be lit. The pumpkins, many with intricate designs and current event themes, will be judged based on creativity, appearance and craftsmanship. Judges will be university, civic and business leaders from the Auburn-Opelika area.

The lighting of the pumpkins will be followed with a performance by a trio from the Auburn University Department of Music.

At 6:30 p.m., there will be a children's costume contest and the opportunity to pose for photos with Aubie.

At 7:30 p.m., winning pumpkins will be announced and prizes awarded. At 8 p.m., the winning pumpkins will be auctioned to benefit the American Institute of Architecture Students.

Other carved pumpkins will be available for purchase for a minimum donation of $5 beginning at 7:30 p.m. with those proceeds also benefitting the AIAS. Carved pumpkins will remain on view for visitors until 10 p.m.

The Dudley Courtyard is located between Dudley Hall and Dudley Commons, which is adjacent to the Graves Amphitheatre on the Auburn University campus.

The day's events will be streamed, beginning at 9 a.m., at this site
