The total weight of the bright orange globes will be more than two tons.
The Great Pumpkin Tree arrived on Wednesday and was placed right in the middle of the street at the town square (intersection of Elkhart & Waterford Streets).
The final pumpkin will be placed in a tree topping ceremony with Wakarusa Elementary First Graders on Thursday, Oct. 6 at 1:30 p.m.
