Pumpkin Illumination and “Trunk or Treat”

Families can bring their carved jack-o-lanterns on Oct. 27 to the Hartley Dodge Memorial Building, where they will be illuminated for all to see.

Young ones can trick-or-treat by pumpkin light from several themed car trunks outside the building. Participation fee for “trunk or treat” is $10. All proceeds benefit the Madison Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
