At Old Greenwich School, the “Pumpkin Lady” was officially unveiled on Tuesday, kicking off the Halloween season for the Old Greenwich community.  The entire school of 400 + children gather each year as the sheet is removed and the Pumpkin Lady’s “theme” is revealed.

This year the theme is Country & Western.

Old Greenwich Elementary continues the month with Pumpkin Patch 2016 on Saturday, October 15th from 11:00am – 4:00pm.

Old Greenwich School’s fall fundraiser has become the highlight of the autumn season for all Old Greenwich families and the surrounding communities.  Imagine an “old fashioned” fair with outdoor music, games, raffles, inflatable bouncies, bake sale, food and tons of fun. All activities are run and organized by parents on the field behind the school, the playground, the parking lot and in the gym.

Funds raised supplement the school’s curriculum enrichment programs (science and math enrichment, music, field trips, art, etc).

New this year:  Taco Loco Food Truck, Garden Catering food tent and a perennial favorite, Asian Food, is back!

Also new this year, the event will feature live music from the New Canaan School of Rock House Band!  Old Greenwich School alum Josh Abrams is part of the band.

After the Pumpkin Patch, the fun continues on Halloween day at 2:30pm sharp, when all 400+ students parade through Old Greenwich Village for all merchants and citizens to see.

Old Greenwich Elementary School is located at 285 Sound Beach Avenue in Old Greenwich.
