Get ready for our annual Beaumont Heritage Society Pumpkin Walk and Haunted Halloween Tour taking place on Saturday, October 21st on the grounds of the historic John Jay French Museum from 6 pm – 9 pm! Use your creativity to decorate or carve a pumpkin and enter it in our contest. The “Best” pumpkin in several categories will be selected by ballot and prizes will be awarded, so gather your friends and family to come vote on your favorites! This event, graciously underwritten by Elizabeth and Russ Waddill, will also include a “haunted” tour of the 1845 French home with costumed actors portraying departed French family members, a hay ride, and a pumpkin craft for the kids. Beaumont Heritage Society holiday events are a great way to start your own family tradition. Don’t miss it!
