Pumpkin Fest @ Long Lane

Ally freakin’ Bernstein ’13 hopes Saturday’s weather doesn’t look like this:

Come celebrate autumn, the harvest, and all things Halloween-y at Long Lane Farm, Wesleyan’s student-run organic vegetable farm! Feature the sweet sounds of Mattabesset Pickers Collective, the Apple Daughters, Jackie and Avery, and Tennessee Mowrey ’14 and his band! Bring money for the Farmers Market! Bring a canned good to be entered into a raffle to win an ION or Javapalooza gift certificate! Bring your bike so LEGIT bike co-op can fix it! Bring your face so we can paint it!

There will be free veggie burgers and crafts, farm tours and good vibes. Don’t miss it!

Note: if it rains (or snows) on Saturday, Pumpkin Fest will take place on Sunday, the 30th, at the same time. Check the Facebook page to see if it is postponed!

Pumpkins and Popsicles (and so can you)

From Alexandra Ellerbeck ’13:

Come carve pumpkins and eat popsicles in the Lo-Rise courtyard. Bring a carving knife, and we’ll supply the pumpkins and popsicles. The pumpkins and popsicles are free, but we’d appreciate it if you could bring a few dollars as a donation to the Green Street Arts Center. We’re inviting kids from Middletown as well, so make sure that you spread the word not only to friends in Lo-Rise but also to any kids you know in T-square.

  • Date: October 9
  • Time: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
  • Location: Lo-Rise Courtyard
