BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Good ol' fashioned pumpkin carving fun was had by all that attended the Pearly Whites Pumpkin Carving Contest on Saturday, Oct. 26 at the Columbia Park Pavilion. Dr. Michael Skolnick and Dr. Brooke Skolnick and their friendly staff welcomed the community on this perfect fall day to celebrate the Halloween spirit.
The pumpkin patch was brought to Columbia Park where children could select their pumpkin and carve and decorate with paint and crafts. Hot apple cider, donuts and homemade pumpkin and vanilla ice cream was served. Door prizes were drawn throughout the event.
The pumpkins were judged by Pearly Whites staff and community leaders and prizes were awarded for carving creativity and craft design. Dr. Michael Skolnick plans to make this an annual event for the community with a fall festival theme.
