LINDEN – Though this year’s Linden Halloween Parade has been canceled, the city Department of Public Property and Community Services still has several Halloween activities planned.
There will be a Halloween pumpkin-painting contest for students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade on Friday, Oct. 8, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., at the John T. Gregorio Recreation Center, 330 Helen Street. There is a $5 registration fee and the deadline to sign up is Oct. 1.
The annual Halloween poster contest is open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Students who are taking art must complete their posters in school; other students may work on their posters at home. Posters must be 9 inches by 12 inches for students in kindergarten through eighth grade and 12 inches by 18 inches for high school students. They cannot use any commercial Halloween decorations. Posters must be submitted to the student’s art teacher or the Gregorio Center by Oct. 18.
Adults and children can also take a Halloween ceramics class at the Gregorio Center. The children’s class is open to students in kindergarten through eighth grade and will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. on Oct. 14. The adults’ class will be held from 7:45-9:30 p.m. on Oct. 14. There is a $10 fee for the children’s class and a $25 fee for the adults’ class. Registration deadline is Oct. 13.
