The Bakery Annual Halloween Event Will Take Place With New COVID Precautions

The Bakery, located at 13a N Front St, New Paltz, New York, will host their 30th annual Night of the 100 Pumpkins event with certain COVID-19 protocols in place for participant protection. The Bakery has partnered with The New Paltz Youth Program, Office for Community Wellness, New Paltz Rescue Squad, New Paltz Safe Coalition, NPPD, Parks and Recreation, the town and village and the school district to make this event possible. 

Those participating in the event will drop their pumpkins at The Bakery on Oct. 30 so they can be displayed on Halloween, Oct. 31. To prevent too many people from gathering in front of The Bakery, the pumpkins will be moved to multiple locations for display, decentralizing the event. Candy will also be safely distributed at each of the locations. 

No judging or prizes will be awarded this year and it will occur during the day, rather than at night. However, everyone who contributes a pumpkin will be given one free pumpkin cookie. 

Contact David Santner at The Bakery if you are interested in participating to help with their planning process.
