Newburyport's Great Pumpkin Lighting & Stroll

Families are encouraged and invited to bring their own jack-o-lantern. Don't want to deal with the mess at home? Pumpkin carving takes place in Market Square. Bring your own pumpkin and create your masterpiece! Tools provided. Pumpkin carving sponsored by Partridge in a Bear Tree and Newburyport Macaroni Kid. Inn Street will have activities for the kids from 5pm-7pm including crafts from Newburyport Macaroni Kid and Street Theater by Theater in the Open.
 
Activities in Market Square start at 5PM. Pumpkins will be lit and placed on the stage in Market Square for all to enjoy! Each family will receive a votive candle that will be lit all at once at dusk.

After the lighting, attendees are encouraged to stroll the downtown and Tannery to "ooh and ahh" at all the pumpkins designed by local businesses! At the end of the evening families are asked to take their pumpkins home for safe keeping.

This event is brought to you by the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce and our retail members!
