Pumpkins will be provided and a small pumpkin patch will be located outside so you can pick your own pumpkin. Inside we will have a fully decorated room with the sounds of halloween playing. For refreshments we will have witches' brew and goodie bags for everyone. All decorating supplies will be provided. All you need to bring is your imagination.
