This year, Halloween falls on Wednesday, October 31, and it’s the highest time you claim your pumpkin and get to work. Additionally, nothing is more fun than carving pumpkins in the Bushwick style accompanied by your friends (or even enemies because you can show ‘em in a pumpkin carving competition).
#1 Where Pumpkin Carving Meets Beer @ Bat Haus (Saturday, 2-6pm)
Bushwick’s first co-working space Bat Haus will host a pumpkin carving session next Saturday from 2 to 6pm. They are promising cheap pumpkins and delicious beer as they have taken Brooklyn Brewery on board for this lovely autumnal occasion.
#2 ¡CALABAZAFEST! @ Maria Hernandez Park (Sunday, 1-5pm)
If you want to carve your pumkins with an eco-friendly message in place, head to Maria Hernandez Park on Sunday. The third year of the pumpkin mini-festival is presented by EcoStation:NY’s Bushwick Farmers’ Market, with community partners Arts in Bushwick, Make the Road NY, El Puente, Chrissy’s Cooking Club, and Bushwick Green Team. Bring your kids too!
#3 Pumpkin Carving @ Café Ghia (Monday, 7:30-9:30pm)
Café Ghia is inviting everyone to join them on for a pumpkin carving event next Monday. Scott, the co-owner, will be heading Upstate for some lovely orange pumpkins for your curving pleasure. $15 will get you not only one pumpkin to carve, but also a bowl of soup and a beer. Sounds perfect to us! Oh, don’t forget to RSVP!!
