Pumpkins on the Plaza
October 9 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM CDTFree
Join 50th & France District for a fun-filled day on the Plaza at Nolan & Mains with pumpkin painting, luminary lantern making, stories, music, and more!
Turn a simple gourd into an imaginative character using eco-friendly paint and a whole lot of imagination! With the help of artist facilitators from Artistry, we will design and paint eyes, noses, mouths, and perhaps even a tentacle or two, to create your very own Halloween pumpkin character perfect for the front stoop.
*Limit 1 pumpkin per family. Register in advance to guarantee your pumpkin! Additional pumpkins will be first-come-first-served for non-registered guests.
Then, let’s light up the long autumn nights with some spectacular sparkling luminaries! We will use simple white paper bags as a base, then we will be able to fold, cut, punch and clip to make beautiful patterns and whimsical designs. Using decorative paper we will also be able to add some additional glamor to our lanterns if we choose. Try some new Halloween decorations this year! Make your very own, one-of-a-kind luminary lantern.
The fun doesn’t stop there. Make sure to stop by our story circle from 10-11am hosted by The Edina and Southdale Libraries! Enjoy a free beverage sample from Clean Juice and check out all of the amazing shops and restaurants in the 50th & France District!
