Mark your calendars for the Pumpkin Party on Thursday, October 24

From Gallagher Way:

We cannot wait to welcome the neighborhood back to our Third Annual Pumpkin Party! This year, Old Town School of Folk Music will lead a few folksy dance and sing-a-longs, the kiddos can create a clay Halloween character or their very own trick-or-treat bag with Kid Create Studio, visit a range of candy stations such as Fannie May chocolate and Garrett Popcorn, sweets, sours, tootsies, lollipops and more to satisfy every type of sweet tooth. Green City Market will provide a caramel apple station and take-home junior pumpkins, there will be balloon and bubble artists, and lawn games galore.

For those with a later bedtime, stick around for the Halloween movie favorite, Hocus Pocus, on the Gallagher Way video board. Special fall-inspired drinks are available for purchase in the park and blankets are welcome.
