Sheriff’s Office Takes Pumpkin Contest on the Road

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office will be taking our Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest on the road this year with our first Traveling Pumpkin Patch. For several years, Sheriff’s Office employees have competed in a pumpkin decorating contest where fellow employees vote by email for the Funniest, Scariest, and Most Creative. Over the years, the competition has grown to include trophies and in recent years, public voting on our social media platforms for the Crowd Favorite award.

This year, we are offering an opportunity to experience these creations in-person and vote for your favorite to help decide the coveted title of Crowd Favorite. We will be scheduling appointments to bring our pumpkin patch display to group facilities such as schools, care facilities, or after school programs. Anyone interested in a visit should contact the Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer by email at
