Neighbors Gather at Patterson Park for Pumpkin Decorating Party

Written by Jane O’Brien

On Friday, October 25, Wilshire Wood and Cherrywood neighbors gathered at Patterson Park for a potluck and pumpkin decorating party. With fluorescent green feathers, glitter glue, crayons, googly eyes, fuzzy pom poms, and yarn, children and parents created pumpkin originals from the sparkly abstract to friendly faces. The pumpkin creations, however, would not be outdone by the feast that people brought. We had vegetarian chili, chicken salad, pizza, Ecuadorian tostado, guacamole, chips, yummy gluten-free cookies and some spectacularly ghoulish cupcakes. Children came in costume, parents mingled, and everyone had a great time. We hope to do it again next year!
