FREE ADMISSION! Friday, Oct. 24, 2014, from 6-9 PM Rain Date, Oct 25th)
The Presby Memorial Iris Gardens, sponsored by Essex County, will have a huge display of Jack O’Lanterns hand carved/painted by local high school students. There will also be entertainment for kids and light refreshments. Entertainment varies each year. Last year’s event was great fun with music and a big outdoor screen and haystack seating for showing Halloween Kids shows, like Scooby Doo, etc. Nothing too scary for the little ones, face painting, a bounce house. etc. Admission is free and so is the entertainment. There were also hot dogs and sodas available for purchase.
You can Vote for The Best Pumpkins from the High Schools on Display. Last year, we know a bunch of folks thought BLOOMFIELD’s WERE BEST! We hope more BENGAL PRIDE is on display this year.
Special Note: Parking is very busy on this night, You can park on the Garden side of Upper Mountain Avenue, but plan to arrive early, as the road fills up quickly! For hale and hearty walkers, you can also park up behind the Gardens on Highland Avenue and walk down into the Gardens.
