Calling all pumpkin carvers


BEACON FALLS — The Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a pumpkin carving contest.

The contest will be held Oct. 29 at the Pent Road Recreation Complex. The contest is open to all Beacon Falls residents. Pumpkins will be judged in two age categories, 11-17 and 18 and up. Prizes will be awarded for each age group for pumpkins that are the funniest, scariest, most original, most creative, and most appropriate for Beacon Falls.

Pumpkins should be dropped off at Pent Road from 3 to 5 p.m. Judging will begin at 5 p.m. All pumpkins will be lit and displayed at dusk.

A rain date is scheduled for Oct. 30. For more information, call Lisa at (203) 881-1170.
