Severe wind damages popular Pumpkin Walk

Severe wind blew over backdrops and displays.

NORTH LOGAN – Volunteers hoped to reopen the Pumpkin Walk Monday night after strong winds closed the popular event for several hours.

The winds from Sunday night and Monday morning knocked over back-drops and damaged displays and decorations.

Pumpkin Walk Coordinator Michelle Weaver said 90% of the displays were damaged from the wind. When she surveyed the damage Monday morning, she knew the Pumpkin Walk would have to be close while crews tried to make repairs.

North Logan Public Works Director Alan Luce said volunteers began repairing the displays Monday afternoon, as winds began to die down.

Luce expected to have the Pumpkin Walk reopened by five-o-clock Monday night.

The popular event will continue through Tuesday night.

Luce said the Cache Valley Transit District will continue to bus people to and from the walk, Monday and Tuesday evenings.

Weaver has volunteered with the Pumpkin Walk for years and said she can’t remember when they have ever had to shut down because of weather.
