The Great Pumpkin - Photo Op in Reidsville, NC
If you are looking for a place to take those fall photos, then you need to visit Downtown Reidsville! The City has created beautiful backdrops for fall photo shoots, and they are free to use!
According to Judy Yarbrough, City Marketer, “Last year at Christmas, City Manager Summer Woodard had a fantastic vision for decorating downtown and creating these great photo opportunities. People came from all over to have their family photos done. It was a Team Reidsville project that included an old tractor, camper, huge postcard and so much more. Well, this year for fall, the Team has done the same thing! The theme for fall is “The Great Pumpkin” and guess what... we have one!”
Beechwood Metal Works was able to create a huge seven-foot pumpkin for the City of Reidsville. It’s simply amazing! We have scenes at Market Square and Mural Park. Market Square has minions, an old beautiful antique truck, a haybale couch and, of course, the Great Pumpkin. Mural Park has our very own Snoopy Dog house scene and a huge life-size poster for the Great Pumpkin.
Downtown Reidsville on Scales Street is going through a complete streetscape transformation. Sidewalks are being redone, Mural Park was completely over hauled. There are new streetlights going in, bump outs with new trees and new brickwork street crossings. Downtown is getting a complete makeover. The project is slated to be completed by March of 2023. Once done our Downtown will have a whole new look. This project certainly shows the commitment of City Council to improve our downtown.
