Trick or Treat at the HAHA Museum Front Porch Jack-o-Lantern Invitational October 31 from 4:30 to 7 pm
Kids, teenagers and adults are invited to come in Costume! Everyone is welcome to stop by the HAHA front porch on Halloween for a treat, some spooky fun, and to learn a bit about the HAHA Museum.
Hermosa/Fairburn area residents-- bring your carved pumpkin (or other squash) to display at the Jack-o-Lantern Invitational for bragging rights and enjoyment (no prizes this year-- maybe next year?).
Drop off your Halloween artistry, starting at 4:30 pm. Absolutely NO CANDLES allowed. Please use a battery-powered light. We will have some on hand for your use. Trick-or-Treaters and your neighbors will stroll through the Jack-o-Lantern display on their way to get a treat at the Museum front porch. Please pick up your display by 7:30 pm.
We will take photos of the Jack-o-Lanterns and those who come in costume and post them on Facebook and on this website.
