The City of Hagerstown and the Downtown Assessment District are sponsoring a Harvest Hey Day Celebration on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 at the City Farmer's Market, said Downtown Coordinator Karen Giffin.
To get a jump on the festivities, youngsters can paint pumpkins at the City Farmer's Market this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. The pumpkins can be picked up during the Harvest Hey Day Celebration the following weekend.
Trick or treat night for the City of Hagerstown is Thursday, Oct. 30, between 6 and 8 p.m.
Youngsters will have the opportunity to pick up more treats during the Hey Day kickoff on Friday, Oct. 31.
The first 1,000 kids to show up at the Farmer's Market between 5 and 7 p.m. on Oct. 31 will receive free treat bags, Giffin said.
