Hopewell Public Library is set to sponsor the third annual Pumpkins on Parade event on Friday, October 30, 2015. Everyone is invited to contribute a carved pumpkin, or simply come downtown and admire the show after dark. Adults, families, kids, engineers, artists, lion tamers, biographers, ballerinas, chefs, hedge fund managers and all other residents of Hopewell are invited to contribute.
Imagine a line of carved, flickering pumpkins stretching down East Broad Street in Hopewell– possibly beyond. Townspeople and visitors stroll along the sidewalk, admiring the handiwork of their neighbors and proudly owning up to the jack ‘o lantern they contributed.
Pumpkins can be dropped off at the library at 13 East Broad Street any time starting on Thursday, October 29, 2015. They will be placed and lit by the Hopewell Boy Scout troop starting at 5 p.m. Cider and candy will be available in front of the library for those strolling past the display.
There is no winner and there are no prizes– Pumpkins on Parade is a way for community members to indulge in some Halloween creativity and see others’ works of art. The challenge this year is to line the block in front of the library on both sides of the street.
