THE GREAT PUMPKIN HUNT
Friday, October 16 – Friday, October 30
The Great Pumpkin Hunt is an opportunity for your family to enjoy some of the Great Pumpkin Party without leaving the comfort of your vehicle.
You will be given the locations of eleven, large pumpkin signs that will be scattered throughout the West Des Moines area from Friday, October 16 thru Friday, October 30.
As your family drives to each location, keep track of the letters you see on the pumpkins, then unscramble what they say. Enter the proper phrase for the chance to win some excellent prizes!

Yes! We have even staggered the show times to make it possible to attend shows back to back. Choose the time of day that works best for you Saturday or Sunday and sign up accordingly. Go from one venue right to the next, or watch a show, head home for a break, and come back later! You will need to reserve your free tickets for EACH showtime you plan to attend.
All tickets are general admission, but when you arrive and present your ticket (mobile or printed) to our check in hosts, they will assign your group a specific seat in the venue.
Each show lasts approximately 1 hour.
Doors will open 15 min before each show.
Yes! Any child who won’t be sitting on a lap for the entire performance needs a ticket.
- Tickets are required to ensure adequate social distance seating by family groups in each venue.
- Bags for kids will be filled four days or more before the shows and will be distributed in ways that minimize contact.
- We have greatly enhanced our cleaning to prevent the spread of disease-causing pathogens. An infection-control company has applied their Science-Proven Microbial Control® treatment on common touchpoints throughout the church. Their EPA-registered antimicrobial surface protectant attracts microbes and destroys them by piercing the cell walls. In addition to this treatment, all venues and bathrooms will be thoroughly disinfected in between each show.
- We will social distance all groups in our venues and provide reminders and floor markers to help families maintain social distance from other groups while waiting.
- Masks are recommended.
