It’s the time of year again to dress up, grab a bag and visit trunks or houses to receive goodies.
It’s also not too late to get a pumpkin to decorate or carve from the pumpkin patch at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church on West Martintown Road. Pumpkin sales continue through Tuesday and the patch is open from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday.
