Participants will be treated to a pathway of hundreds of handcarved scary pumpkins, most of which are carved by the scouts themselves.

Previous spooktaculars have been very successful with some 385 people showing up last year to support the Scouts.

As with their annual Pasta Supper, the funds raised through the Pumpkin Spooktacular go to the troop to help pay for camping and equipment. The Pumpkin Spooktacular is a great community event with local businesses sponsoring pumpkins to help defray the costs. The show is always free, but donations are accepted at the gate.

Anyone can carve a pumpkin to be exhibited in the annual event. Bring the carved pumpkin, along with two votive candles, to 30 Beach Ave. today.

People attending the event can vote for their favorite pumpkins in several categories like Best in Show, Scariest, and Funniest.

Follow the signs to 30 Beach Ave. for this fun family event, which will be held rain or shine. For more information, call 423- 2866.
