Sunday, October 25th:
Such a great success yesterday! Pumpkins are nearly sold out but you can still get one between 11am – 1pm today.
Due to the rain today’s carving is cancelled.
The Rosedale Conservancy is pleased to host a number of Halloween/Fall activities this October. All activities will be on Rosedale’s grounds (35th/Newark) culminating in the first-ever pumpkin patch and annual pumpkin carving the weekend of Oct. 24/25. Further details below:
October 24 and 25 from 11am – 2pm.
Enjoy the first-ever John Eaton Elementary Pumpkin Patch — right at Rosedale. The school will be selling corn husks and pumpkins of all colors, shapes, and sizes (including plenty of large-faced carving pumpkins).
October 24 and 25 from 12noon – 3pm.
This is BYOP (bring your own pumpkin), or instead, just purchase at the patch. Per tradition, Rosedale will provide stencils and carving instruction. However, this year Rosedale asks that you bring your own carving tools if possible, although a limited number will be available on-site.
Creations to be installed the week of Oct. 18-23, with judging/prizes on October 24th
You are the artist! Please use your artistic and whimsical talents to make scarecrows/harvest people/seasonal creatures to display along the Rosedale fence along Newark Street. Rosedale is sponsoring its first exhibit to decorate the fence and add flare. Everyone in the community is welcome to participate. Rosedale volunteers will affix your work to the fence. Prizes will be awarded (Best Overall, Most Colorful, and Most Unusual) and photos of the creations will be posted on the Rosedale website.
- Make a weatherproof/resistant creation whenever you have time over the next few weeks. For ideas and inspiration, see https://www.pinterest.com/pin/219691288048287486/
- Contact Jill Hall through firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment between October 18-23 to bring your creation to Rosedale. A volunteer will attach the work to the fence.
- Email a photo of your entry to email@example.com so we know that it’s yours.
- If you would like to preserve your work, remove it from the fence between November 28-30.
- Please keep your creations apolitical and fun. The Rosedale board reserves the right not to display a creation deemed inappropriate.
**All activities will adhere to safety protocols with 6 feet of physical distance. Masks required. Please leave furry friends at home.**
See you there!
