Halloween is just around the corner, so bring your kids to City Park on Saturday and let the festivities begin early.
Start out the night by showing off your artistic skills (and taking home a new decoration for your front porch) in the annual pumpkin-carving contest. Pumpkins can be dropped off at the park at 5 p.m. with judging beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The pumpkins will then be used to light the Trick or Treat Trail along the woodchip path at City Park. The event, sponsored by the City of Clawson and Clawson Youth Assistance, begins at 6 p.m. Children are encouraged to dress up in their costumes, and grab some free candy provided by local businesses and groups.
Children must be accompanied by an adult and bring along a flashlight and a bag for candy-collecting.
Donuts and cider will be provided in the park's pavilion following the Trick or Treat Trail.
Pumpkins entered in the carving contest may be picked up at 8 p.m.
