Fall Fun

The Great Pumpkin

Join in the Perfect Pumpkin Party


With Halloween around the corner, it’s time to enjoy October’s iconic vegetable (or is it a fruit?), the pumpkin. While this categorically-confused treat may be perfect for pies, soups and various desserts, the Rhode Island Audubon Society believes the best way to appreciate this gourd-like squash is with A Perfect Pumpkin Party. From 10am-4pm on Saturday, October 20, the society will be putting on events that showcase the many ways one can use a pumpkin. From bowling with a pumpkin to rolling a pumpkin in paint so as to create an artistic masterpiece, this day promises fun for all ages. The event is free with admission. $4-6.
