November 5 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
green your Halloween at Newton’s annual Pumpkin Smash on November 5 from 1 – 4pm, rain or shine. Stop by to smash your pumpkin, touch-a-truck and donate unwanted candy or costumes. Grab a bite from a local food truck all while learning about managing your food waste and composting.
You could put your Halloween pumpkin in with your yard waste, but how much more fun would it be to “green your Halloween” and smash it? Fling pumpkins with the catapult, a pumpkin target or the Pumpkin Smashing grounds. This family-friendly event takes our orange pumpkins and turns them “green.” All our smashed pumpkins will be composted by Black Earth Compost, thus reducing waste and greenhouse gas emissions and creating a valuable amendment for our soils. Don’t forget to remove any candles or decorations from your pumpkin.
Don’t forget to bring any unwanted candy and costumes too– they will be donated.
It’s going to be a smashing good time! Pre-register for the event at https://bit.ly/3rLh2oY
