There will be free-style pumpkin carving, facepainting, crafts, live music by The Rusty Hinges, and refreshments provided by Home Kitchen Café. Families will be able to have their pictures taken with life-size cut outs of the Wizard of Oz characters and will be able to watch It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown showing in the museum auditorium. A parade will take place on Main Street, departing from the sculpture garden at 5:30 p.m. Families are invited to participate in the parade by wearing costumes and masks.
