Kids will get the chance to learn pumpkin carving skills, make Halloween decorations and more at a special event at the Children’s Museum of the Sierra on Saturday, Oct 27.
The Halloween Festival will feature pumpkin carving lessons from members of the Sierra Woodcarvers and will help kids make some truly unique creations.
“The Sierra Woodcarvers volunteered to get involved and show kids how to do relief-style pumpkin carvings. They last longer than the traditional jack-O-lantern carvings, you can do more with them, and of course you don’t have to worry about kids using knives,” said Steve Montalto, director of the Children’s Museum of the Sierra.
The woodcarvers also made several Halloween decorations that kids can paint, in addition to other craft projects going on at the museum throughout the day.
“It’s a very open-format style of event. Families can come any time throughout the day and take part in the activities,” said Montalto.
The Sierra Lions Club will be on hand grilling hotdogs and hamburgers, with proceeds going back to the Children’s Museum.
“It will be a chance for families to come in, make some cool decorations, have some fun and also enjoy the museum’s exhibits,” said Montalto.
The festival runs from 11 am to 5 pm. For more information, visit http://www.ChildrensMuseumOfTheSierra.org or call 559-658-5656.
