Children of all ages are invited to grab a pumpkin, fire up their imaginations and enter the Pumpkin Pageant at the Oshkosh Public Library. Deadline to enter is Thursday, Oct. 30 at 8 p.m.
 
To ensure that they last through the end of the month, pumpkins should not be carved. The pumpkins will be displayed indoors and we would like to avoid the dreaded “fuzzy pumpkin.” Decorated pumpkins should be brought to the Children’s Department in the library’s lower level. Final judging takes place on Thurs., Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. Awards will be given out in ten categories, including People’s Choice. Children can pick up their pumpkins during the week after Halloween.
 
Prizes will include new books, food coupons and other goodies.

Join us for Hoppy Halloween - a delightfully twisted rock and roll concert showcasing The Traveling Suitcase, Mutts and Pop Goes The Evil. The event includes these three wildly awesome, totally authentic rock bands, artisan Stone Arch brew and the perfect Halloween venue!

Warning: Hoppy Halloween serves up rock and roll that's not for the squeamish! These bands specialize in old-fashioned-blood-and-guts-leave-it-all-on-the-stage-play-till-there's-nothing-left-in-the-tank rock and roll. And you get to see it all in one night, and for just ten bucks. Now that's scary.

Costumes totally optional. Clothes required. This is a 21-and-over event!
