FLASHBACK FRIDAY: The Burbank High School Pumpkin


BHS pumpkin1

A strange high school tradition has been noted in vintage pictures of Burbank High School.

It seems every year in October a rather large pumpkin was placed at the crown of the roof over the main entrance to the school. No one has been able to give us and explanation if it was a ritual or a decoration only or possibly a yearly student prank.

But the fact that pictures in old yearbooks and other professional photos show the Pumpkin up there and then later it is gone, causes us to wonder.
