On Saturday, October 18, from 3 to 6 p.m., the Farnsworth Art Museum’s sculpture garden will be transformed into the Fall Family Festival grounds. There will be free-style pumpkin carving, face painting, crafts, and live music. Families will be able to have a tin-type picture taken and will be able to watch the movie It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown in the museum auditorium.
Beginning at 5:15 p.m., a parade will take place on Main Street, departing from the sculpture garden. Families are invited to participate in the parade by wearing costumes and masks. Some masks will be made available thanks to Shoestring Theater, which will be teaching an after- school workshop the week leading up to the festival and parade. Grab a noisemaker, borrow a mask, and join in the fun! Immediately following the parade, the group will return to the sculpture garden for the lighting of the pumpkins. In case of rain, activities will take place in the Gamble Education Center, located at the corner of Grace and Union Streets. Please call (207) 596-0949 with any questions or see farnsworthmuseum.org/children-family-programs.
