We are delighted to host our 40th annual Great Pumpkin Spectacle on Thursday, October 26th.

4:30 – 6:00 p.m. Pumpkin Registration for K- 4th Graders at the Gleason Public Library
To register, bring your pumpkin to the front lawn of the library between 4:30 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 26. Pumpkins will be judged separately by grade, with three winners in each grade level, K-4.  There will also be two “lucky” winners, one drawn from lower elementary and one drawn from upper elementary. Those who do not wish their pumpkins to be judged may bring them to a special “display only” table. There will be seventeen (17) winners total.

6:30 p.m.  Halloween Magic Program with Scott Martel
Join us for spooky magic with Scott Martel in Corey Auditorium at Carlisle Public School! It’s a 45-minute show of non-stop magic, comedy, thrills and surprises!

We will hold our Great Pumpkin Spectacle award ceremony at 7:30PM.

We ask that all participants pick up their pumpkin by 9:00 p.m. that evening. We will place the remaining pumpkins on our front steps for ease of pick up.

If you have any questions, please email us at childrens@gleasonlibrary.org 

Painted Pumpkin Take-and-Make

Have you always wished the Great Pumpkin Spectacle wasn’t just for the kids? This year, in honor of the 40th Annual Spectacle, adults and teens can pick up a mini pumpkin painting kit at the Library, then bring back their pumpkin art for display! Available at the Circulation Desk while supplies last. ????
