Meals on Wheels holds this annual fundraising event at the Salem County Fairgrounds from 4 pm to 9 pm. Tickets are $7 for adults and free for children ages 5 and under. Local artists come together with high school and amateur artists to carve giant pumpkins. The fall event attracts about 4,000 people each year and offers a pumpkin light show, free hayrides, kids crafts, straw maze, music and more family fun. It celebrates the agricultural and artistic heritage of Salem County, while raising money for Meals on Wheels. Sponsorships are available and small businesses can participate as vendors to help support our program. Call Peg or Teresa for more information at 856-935-3663. “Dr. Zeuss’ House” won Best of Show in 2014. Check our Facebook page for more pictures.
