The annual CAA Pumpkin Carving will be taking place on Friday, October 27, from 3 to 6 p.m. Everyone is invited to stop in and carve a free pumpkin at this community-favorite event. Stop in on your way to Inlet’s Trunk or Treat and Costume Parade, or simply focus on your designs and enjoy pizza and cider provided by the Central Adirondack Association.

The week wraps up on Saturday, October 28 from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., with the fasted growing Halloween Party in the Adirondacks. In its 4th year and Universal Monster-themed, this free annual party is becoming a fan-favorite event at View. The Monster Mash Halloween Party will feature a cash bar, with some Halloween-themed specialty cocktails, light appetizers, music, and, of course, a costume contest, with cash prizes awarded to the three best costumes. Due to the alcohol at the event, the party is for ages 21 and over.

The Monster Mash is part of the Hallowed Forge Pumpkin Party and is being co-sponsored by the Central Adirondack Association.
