Pumpkin Walk & Halloween Parade Tuesday, October 28 (rain date: October 29) 6:00 PM   
Last year's Pumpkin Walk and Halloween Parade was so much fun, we're going to do it again! It's the second annual Pumpkin Walk! Put on a costume and bring your carved pumpkin with a battery light to carry or share on the walkway. This event is geared for little ones who may be overwhelmed by larger Halloween events. We will start at the the library parking lot and walk through Gardiner returning to the Rail Trail for treats. Don't forget to bring a flashlight.
