Pumpkins in the Park: Nocturnal Tales and Treats
Francis William Bird Park- Polley Ln. Walpole, MA
Saturday, October 28th, 2017 
5:30pm - 7:30pm 

Our favorite Halloween family event has expanded! In addition to the beloved pumpkin decorating contest, we’ll have a pumpkin-lit “nocturnal trail." Families with little ones are invited to walk a short trail through the woods, where actors play the role of nocturnal animals. The animals share fun facts about themselves as they hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, so remember to wear your costume and a bring flashlight!

As in the past, carvers of all ages are welcome to submit a pumpkin to the event. Pumpkins are judged in several different categories by guest judges. Categories include "Most Creative," "Scariest," "Most Traditional, and "Funniest." Winners are announced that evening. Each winner receives a prize and an opportunity to stand proudly on the pumpkin podium for a photo with their winning pumpkin. Bring your pumpkin to the event or drop it off at the Bird Park office prior to the event. All can enjoy Halloween-themed games and spooky music! Refreshments will be sold to support the park. Activities take place at the Music Court (stone stage).

Price: The pumpkin decorating contest and games are FREE. Trick-or-treating on the “nocturnal trail” is $5/child.

No registration necessary. Please contact Maura (mogara@thetrustees.org; 508-668-6136) with questions or to check for cancellation in case of inclement weather.
