GROTON -- On Saturday, Oct. 19, from 3:30-5:30 p.m., ArtsNashoba invites you to its inaugural Pumpkin Palooza Fest. For $7 each, children and adults can decorate or paint two personal pumpkins, sing pumpkin songs, listen to pumpkin stories and enjoy apple cider to toast the autumn season.
Well-known West Groton artist Ken Hansen will be on-hand demonstrating elaborate pumpkin carving using everything from a kitchen knife to a drill. All those attending will have a chance to win a Ken creation for their porch or holiday table, and there will be discount coupons to local farms for large pumpkins and/or a trek through a corn maze.
Please join the fun at the Union Congregational Church Vestry, 218 Main St. Reservations are required to ensure there are enough pumpkins for all.
