The 17th Annual Giant Pumpkin Carve of Salem County will bring a "frightful" dose of family fun to the community on Saturday, September 28, 2013 at the Salem County Fair Grounds. About 50 local professional, amateur and student artists will transform 65 great gourds into innovative works of art for all to admire, kicking off the Halloween season with magical displays. Don't be confused by any other "pumpkin show"--No other local event offers this unique display.
Free "haunted" hay rides, musical entertainment, a variety of children's activities for kids 12 and under including straw maze, crafts, bounce house, the Pumpkin Pageant crowning and more, are all part of the admission. The Fall Farmers Market will return featuring produce and items from local artists, crafters, florists, and others.
You can feel good about attending. This event will help Meals on Wheels continue to bring nutrition and companionship to those who are confined to their homes. Opportunities are available for vendors and sponsors. Call Chris at 935-3663.
