Wagner Farm Arboretum, 197 Mountain Ave,. Warren

Join us for an evening of Halloween fun and excitement. A thousand creatively carved and lighted pumpkins and pumpkin sculptures will be displayed throughout the gardens and fields of the Arboretum. A Haunted Showcase is also included in ticket purchase. Stop by the Black Hat Café for drinks and treats, as well as face painting and tattoos.

A pumpkin carving contest will be held prior to opening night. Categories are ages 12 and under, ages 13 - 17, and adults 18 and up. Children can carve fresh pumpkins, and adults can either use fresh pumpkins or "fun-kins," craft pumpkins. For complete rules and information about the contest, check the web site (wfafnj.org) or contact shasselman@hotmail.com. Winners will be announced on October 23rd and 30th.

Wagner Farm is also looking for volunteers to help with a number of activities during Brite Nites, including ticket sales, pumpkin patch guides, crowd control, parking lot supervisor, food sales, and the haunted house. If you are interested in volunteering, send an e-mail to volunteer@wfafnj.org.
