The Stoddard Avenue Pumpkin Glow 

This fun, annual, FREE event for the whole family is enjoyed by almost 10,000 guests to Grafton Hill!  We have lots of volunteer opportunities to help gut and carve the pumpkins every year.  Stay tuned to our website for more information as we get closer to the event.  The pumpkins are displayed for the community on the LAST Monday and Tuesday of October each year.  

A special thank you to all of our Sponsors & Supporters: Grandview Medical Center/Kettering Health Network, The City of Dayton Mini-Grant, and of course–Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.  Thank you for helping us bring so much joy to our community through The Stoddard Avenue Pumpkin Glow! for more details.
