The Greencastle Parks and Recreation Department will host the "Mr. Zucchini Head Contest" on Wednesday, Aug. 8 from 6-7:30 p.m. at shelterhouse No. 1 in Robe-Ann Park.
The new program is designed to be fun for the whole family. Using parts and pieces from the department's Mr. Potato Head(s), participants can create his next-door neighbor Mr. Zucchini Head.
There will be a registration fee of $5 per family. Zucchini will be provided along with some zucchini-based snacks and participation awards will be given to everyone.
Anyone interested in participating is asked to pre-register by Monday afternoon, Aug. 6 at Greencastle City Hall.
Registration forms can be found at the Putnam County Museum, Putnam County Public Library, Greencastle Pediatric Dentistry, the Greencastle Aquatic Center and City Hall.
