Wow, the Essex County Presby Memorial Gardens are pulling out all the stops this afternoon from 4:00 to 7:00. Just a reminder that you can enjoy cider, cookies, take home a free pumpkin, watch the jack-o-lanterns glow and even take a gander at some fun animal friends from the Turtleback Zoo! And it’s all free–just stop by for a great time. Worried there won’t be enough free pumpkins to go around? Don’t fret–that’s Presby’s Executive Director, Linda Sercus, wheeling one of many loads of pumpkins out to the iris beds. You’re invited to bring a jack-o-lantern to light, but you’re welcome with or without. Thanks to Essex County Parks System for sponsoring this wonderful event.
