The pumpkin ship left Kirkland Friday morning, headed to Seattle’s Lake Union Park. The 1889 tugboat “Arthur Foss” landed there in the afternoon. Volunteers helped load hundreds of pumpkins donated by Remlinger Farms and transported to Kirkland by Jordan River Moving & Storage. The Northwest Seaport Crew sailed with the pumpkins.
Pumpkins will be available for purchase ($5 cash only) on Saturday at the Tugboat Pumpkin Patch at the Historic Ships Wharf at South Lake Union Park. Maritime themed templates will be available to help carve the perfect seaworthy squash. The event Saturday runs from 12-7 p.m.
