First is a pumpkin carving party at Memorial Hall, 14 West Main Street, on Sunday, October 29, from 1 to 3 pm.
Stop by to make jack-o’-lanterns to decorate Wilmington’s downtown for the Halloween trick or treating festivities. DVCP and Wings will provide free pumpkins and assistants. Participants should bring their creative ideas to create a ‘spooktacular’ pumpkin display all around town. Some carving and scooping tools will be available, but feel free to bring personal items as well. As there are sharp tools involved, this is considered a family event where parents are asked to stay and be available to help children with carving. There are 30 pumpkins available for people of all ages to carve, truly fun for all.
Wilmington Works will use the jack-o’-lanterns to decorate for the annual downtown trick or treating, which will take place from 4 to 6:30 pm on Halloween, Tuesday, October 31. Each business or organization staying open for Halloween will have one of the community jack-o’-lanterns decorating their doorstep.
Children and families are welcome to take their own jack-o’-lantern home following the trick or treating if they wish. Pumpkins will be labelled with their maker’s name and can be taken home after 6:30 pm on Halloween.
Please note that there will not be a Halloween party after trick or treating at the Old High School this year.
