Halloween Costume Exchange and Candy Donation at Newton Pumpkin Smash on November 6

Green your Halloween at Newton’s Pumpkin Smash on Saturday, November 6 from 1-4pm at the Newton City Hall War Memorial Circle (1000 Commonwealth Ave., Newton).

Yes, bring your pumpkins for smashing (and catapulting), but also bring:

  • Halloween costumes for our first ever costume swap (or just donate)
  • unwanted candy that will be donated to our troops

This family friendly event will be focused on options to manage food waste in Newton. All smashed pumpkins will be composted by Black Earth Compost. By composting your pumpkin, you are reducing waste, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and creating a valuable amendment for our soils.

Pre-registration for the event is encouraged. It’s going to be a smashing time!
