OLD FORGE — The Central Adirondack Association’s Hallowed Forge Pumpkin Party is back for its third year.
Activities and celebrations throughout the community are spaced over two weekends, Oct. 22–24 and Oct. 29-31 (and a few in between).
There will be something festive and fall-like for everyone with offerings for families, for children and adults spaced throughout the end of October. Classics like pumpkin sports return for family fun, according to event organizers.
Businesses can also consider doing something special like provide candy, host an activity or have promos to join the fun and make the community festive and welcoming - a lot like the CAA’s Christmas on Main Street event.
Herron Realty, one of the event’s sponsors will be hosting donuts and cider on their porch one afternoon.
Back by popular demand is the pumpkin throwing contest at the Old Forge Lakefront.
Residents and visitors alike are invited to create contraptions for winning the pumpkin throwing contest, or just try their arm at hurling the furthest into the pond.
In 2019, a hand-thrown pumpkin went further than ones thrown in a very impressive trebuchet, organizers added.
A preliminary calendar of all community Halloween events will be finalized soon, visitors should feel free to check social media and website calendars for the CAA, View, the Old Forge Library and other participating organizations.
