Jersey Central Art Studios along with the Friends of the Library and the Hanson House Conservancy will host its second pumpkin carving contest at Hanson Park on Saturday October 27th. Registered, pre carved pumpkins will be lighted and displayed along the paths of Hanson Park during the evening for all to see and enjoy.
The contest is free and open to all who would like to submit their creative pumpking carvings. Each pumpkin, which will be lighted, will be placed its own pedestal in a arrangement that illuminates a haunted pathway through Hanson Park.
The evening will start with an outdoor showing of the Bride of Frankenstein, continuing the creepy classic monster movie theme from last year.
Entrants must supply their own carved pumpkin. Pre-carved pumpkins will be accepted between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm on October 27th at Hanson Park, 38 Springfield Ave.
Ribbons will be awarded in four age categories, 3 to 8, 9 to 13, 14 to 17, and 18 to adult and three classes: funniest, scariest, or most creative. Pumpkins will be on display from 6pm- 9:30pm and the movie will start a sundown.
