Pumpkin painting isn’t the only fun at the 2015 Pumpkin Patch festival hosted by the Island Recreation Association. Bounce houses, carnival games, a petting zoo and the popular Halloween costume contest are all part of this annual festival in Shelter Cove Community Park. Kids will be awarded for having the best, most original, funniest and scariest costumes. The event is geared towards children ages 3 – 12 years, but everyone is welcome. Admission is $10 for children, ages 2-15 years.
