Get Halloween-ready with The Arts Council of Princeton and Princeton Shopping Center. Design a custom bag for trick-or-treating and join Alex & the Kaleidoscope for a sing-along. Alex & the Kaleidoscope is an interactive music entertainment band, targeted for children 4-8 years old. They encourage and inspire kids to celebrate and learn through the power of songs, fun facts and adventures to interesting places around the world.

Get hands-on-with Halloween-inspired art activities and find out why pumpkins are orange with a DNA experiment courtesy of the Graduate Molecular Biology Outreach Program of Princeton University. Discover what makes pumpkins orange through the blueprint of life! Participants will take home their very own test tube of pumpkin DNA. Plus, get a taste of fall flavors with seasonal tasting from Sweetberry Bowls. The event culminates with a parade through the shopping center—costumes encouraged.

The Arts Council of Princeton, founded in 1967, fulfills its mission of Building Community through the Arts by presenting a wide range of programs including community arts outreach, exhibitions, performances, free community cultural events, and studio-based classes and workshops in a wide range of media. Housed in the landmark Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, Arts Council of Princeton programs are designed to be high-quality, engaging, affordable and accessible for the diverse population of the greater Princeton region. Visit artscouncilofprinceton.org for more information.

For more than 60 years, Princeton Shopping Center has been a true community gathering place. Its unique design boasts 40 local and national retailers, and a two-acre landscaped courtyard that is warmly referred to by community members as “the living room of Princeton.” Anchored by local and family owned McCaffrey’s Market, the center not only serves as a staple for goods, but is jointly used as a neighborhood events space. Partnering with local organizations, the center remains a vibrant meeting place for residents and visitors throughout the year.
