The Greenbelt Pumpkin Festival returns, Oct. 24- 25, under the leadership of Melissa Ehrenreich, along with the Maryland Milestones & Anacostia Trails Heritage Area (ATHA) and the Chesapeake Education, Arts and Research Society (CHEARS) as event co-sponsors.
The community is invited to a Community Carve-Off event, 5 p.m., Oct. 24, at Roosevelt Center. The Pumpkin Walk will be held 5:30-9 p.m., Oct. 25 on Northway Road extension. The first hour of the walk is reserved for the youngest children and their families. Later in the evening, the magical creatures of the woods, including the infamous Goat Man, may become a little mischievous. Everyone is invited to visit the woods that were saved for the community and future generations of children and their families in Greenbelt.
Carving utensils and pumpkins are provided, although monetary donations are much appreciated. Donations support the purchase of pumpkins, materials, and the bands that will be present at the carving party.
