Pumpkins Invited To Join the Audubon Trail
The Sharon Audubon Center on Route 4 in Sharon, Conn., is hosting a Pumpkin Trail, open daily from dawn until dusk from Thursday, Oct. 28, through Thursday, Nov. 11, with special night time viewing events on Friday, Oct. 29, and Saturday, Oct. 30, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. (BYO flashlight).
Area residents are invited to submit as many jack-o’-lanterns as they would like for the Pumpkin Trail. They may either be carved (freehand or stenciled) or decorated (painted, using recycled materials, etc.). Audubon will also accept gourds that are decorated as animals. No inappropriate or gory entries will be accepted.
All submissions must be accompanied by a completed entry form. Entries may be dropped off at the Audubon Center on the front lawn area from Oct. 25 through Oct. 27 at noon. Participants can receive $2 off one pumpkin for the trail by taking the coupon to Paley’s Farm Market in Sharon.
