    1 East Main St, Warner NH

    Bring the family to the 3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving and Lighting at Schoodacs. Bring your own carving implements or purchase some kid-safe carving tools here at the shop. Feel free to bring your own pumpkin to carve or already carved for display in town. Pumpkins will be lit that evening and through Halloween! We are starting a little earlier this year to complement the Farmer's Market if weather permits them to be open. So we'll be carving at 9am through 5pm - ALL DAY - so come on out any time on Saturday the 28th. New this year, we are suggesting a $5 contribution per pumpkin to help offset the costs of purchasing good carving pumpkins from local farmers. This is not required, but encouraged if you are able, to help keep this event here in town. We will hollow the pumpkin out for you and keep it lit through Halloween! Join the Facebook Event
