Spooky day out in Old Greenwich

Halloween isn’t until next Wednesday, when Greenwich’s trick or treaters venture out in search of those elusive full candy bars and avoid the houses giving out dental floss and sugar free gum without the snowstorm that blanketed us on Halloween 2011.

 

But the Old Greenwich School got the festivities off to an early start on Oct. 13 with its annual Pumpkin Patch day of spooky festivities. The annual community spectacular had food, games, raffles and of course a pumpkin patch for people from all over town to come to pick out the perfect ones for jack-o-lantern carving. And to set the mood, the school’s auditorium was transformed into a haunted house complete with a witch taking tickets and many ghouls and goblins along the way.

The annual event also included, earlier this month, a food drive for Neighbor to Neighbor, where 1,200 canned goods were collected by the community for donation. And through the Halloween season the “pumpkin lady” will remain outside the school on Sound Beach Avenue.
