Every Halloween, the staff at Tempe Mission Palms in Tempe, Arizona has a pumpkin carving contest. Each department receives a pumpkin to carve, and they are displayed in the lobby during the week of Halloween.
Guests can vote via in-person ballot, or on the Tempe Mission Palms Facebook page, for their favorite pumpkin. This is a great team-building activity for our staff, but best of all, our hotel guests and social media fans love to see the creativity. Although we do not have an official prize, bragging rights are just as appreciated by our staff, which are currently held by the HR department who submitted the “turtle” in 2012.
Cast your vote now for the 2013 winner!
