Pumpkin Carving Contest

Pumpkin Carving Contest

Things are getting spoooooooky at the Camas Public Library as Halloween draws closer. Next week, in fact, is officially Spooky Week at the Camas Library, with a pumpkin carving contest and ghost stories for grown-ups and kids.

Judging for the library’s pumpkin carving contest will take place on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 4 p.m. Bring your carved pumpkin to the library to compete with other pumpkin-carvers for prizes. Awards will be presented after the judging. You can bring your pumpkin at any time before 4 p.m. on the day of the contest. Awards will be presented after judging. Award categories include Most Creative, Scariest and Funniest.

Come back to the library on Friday, Oct. 28, for “Listening in the Dark,” an annual event which celebrates the art of the spooky story. Not-Too-Scary Stories for children starts at 7 p.m., and Hair-Raising Tales for adults begins at 8 p.m. Both storytelling events will be held in the Totem Pole Room with stories read by Dan Sisco and Camas Library staff.
