Enter pumpkin carving contest at History Ablaze Halloween Bash

Prepare for ghoulish family fun for all ages at the Trumbull Historical Society’s History Ablaze Halloween Bash to be held on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 6-9 p.m. This spook-tacular event will feature a town-wide Jack O‘ Lantern contest and display of carved pumpkins, true tales of Trumbull’s haunted history with live storytellers, face painting and festive fall refreshments.

The Trumbull Historical Society invites all town organizations, associations, and residents — young and old — to enter a carved pumpkin into the Jack-o’-Lantern contest and display. There is no limit to the amount of entries, and residents may submit a pumpkin as part of an organization and/or as an individual. Each carved jack-o’-lantern gains one free admission.
