Free Pumpkin Carving & Petting Zoo in NoMa 10/24
What better way to prep for Halloween then an old fashioned pumpkin carving party with hot apple cider? How about a party featuring both of those, plus a petting zoo, a candy scavenger hunt, live music, and food and adult beverages? Oh, they also have PUMPKIN ICE CREAM. Press release after the jump.
Stop by the NoMa pumpkin patch on Thursday, October 24, and enjoy happy hour with friends and the cutest petting zoo in the city! Reserve your pumpkin today, and bring some friends to carve your jack-o-lantern. Union Kitchen members will sell beer, wine and more: Running Byrd Tea (hot apple cider), Milk Cult (pumpkin ice cream), and Quickstep Catering (Asian 5 Spice Pulled Pork Sandwich and Edamame Wrap).
Don’t want to get your hands in pumpkin guts? No problem! Hear Sam’O perform live music, and join a candy scavenger hunt for children starting at 5:30 PM.
