DuPont Parks and Recreation is proud to facilitate a variety of special events throughout the year.
The Parks & Recreation Annual Auction is nearly upon us!
Proceeds support youth, adult, and senior programming.
We kindly ask that you consider giving a donating an auction item, gift basket, or gift card to this year’s event. No donation is too small, as we will happily and cleverly incorporate it into a gift basket. Your donation truly makes a difference in the community.
If you have any items that could be included in the following baskets please let us know:
Arts & Crafts
During the month of October, be on the lookout for zombie-themed painted rocks cleverly hidden throughout the community.
Lucky recipients will be entered into a drawing to win a frightful gift basket delivered to your porch on Halloween!
Instructions will be on the back of the rock.
Big thanks to our DuPont teens for painting these little treasures!
The Great Pumpkin Search
October 19 - 25, 2020
Local businesses and organizations have cleverly hidden an abundance of creatively decorated pumpkins throughout the City for you to find! Let us know if you found a pumpkin and claim your prize by contacting Emma at email@example.com.

Annual Bone Hunt

Nothing like a little hocus-pocus this Halloween! Calling little ghosts and ghouls get hunting for bones at the Annual Bone Hunt! Flashlights are encouraged after sunset. Facemasks and social distancing required.
The DuPont Historical Society has a puzzle for you! Using the 11 interpretive signs, 6 monuments, and 1 statue placed throughout historic DuPont and Northwest Landing, take a walk or several walks and see if you can locate the sign, monument, or statue that answers the clues!
Whether you are looking to earn required volunteer points, meet new people, or simply get more involved in the community, volunteering for a Citywide special event is a great option! Call (253) 964-8121 or visit the Volunteer Opportunities page for additional information.
