Montville -- The town’s Parks and Recreation will sponsor a free pumpkin decorating event for children ages 12 and under on Sunday, Oct. 27.
Pumpkins and decorations will be provided and children can provide the inspiration and talent while decorating pumpkins with paint, markers and stickers -- no carving.
The event will be held at the large pavilion at Camp Oakdale at 75 Oxoboxo Dam Road at 1 p.m. Sunday and is limited to the first 50 registrants received by Friday.
To reserve a spot for a child, either call the Parks and Recreation Department at (860) 848-3030 ext. 322 or 321 and leave your child’s name and age or email Pete Bushway at firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com by Friday.
Donations of canned and dry dog food, treats, blankets, towels and toys for donation to the Montville Animal Shelter will be accepted. Those who bring a donation will be eligible for random prize drawings.
