Berkshire Seed Library Hosts Pumpkin Carving Spooktacular - Oct. 26

The Berkshire Seed Library, a program hosted by the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield’s Public Library, will host a free family-friendly pumpkin carving Halloween party at 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26 at the library. Costumes are encouraged.

The library will provide the pumpkins, carving tools and decorating supplies. Please note pumpkins cannot be reserved; only one pumpkin per youth. Additionally, face-painting, mask-making, a story walk, and fall refreshments will be available.

No registration required and youths under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. 

The Berkshire Seed Library will have containers available for pumpkin seeds to be brought home for roasting or saving for next season.

“This is the third year we’ve done this free event and it’s always a blast,” says Outreach Librarian Samuel Reggio. “We want to provide access to this fun activity for all Pittsfield families, and it’s such a great opportunity for kids to get their hands dirty.”   This free event, and the Berkshire Seed Library, is courtesy of The Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum. The pumpkins are from Taft Farms in Great Barrington.
