The Monroe-Woodbury Girl Scout Community will hold its annual Pumpkin Blaze at Sacred Heart School on Still Road in Monroe tonight, Oct. 18.

Girls will carve and/or paint pumpkins from 5 to 6:30 p.m., followed by a community viewing from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Crafts and games will also be available for attendees.

Baked goods and glow bracelets will be on sale as well.

The free annual event will feature hundreds of carved pumpkins which will be lit at dusk for the community to admire. Pumpkin Blaze draws hundreds to admire the creative carving of girl scouts of all ages.

“This is a great night to get ready for the Halloween and fall season,” said Barbara Mallory, the Monroe-Woodbury Girl Scout Community volunteer service manager. “We are grateful to Sacred Heart School for allowing us to use their grounds and gym; and to all the girls who will be participating. This is a great representation of community at its best.”
