More than 500 residents endured the rain as they celebrated Halloween at The Village of Islandia’s 11th annual Pumpkin Fest on the grounds of Village Hall on October 22. Throughout the event, children decorated their pumpkins, took part in a Halloween costume parade and contest and joined their families on hayrides. Islandia’s own “Joe the Singing Bus Driver” was there to tell spooky stories and sing Halloween songs to the children.
The village also provided guests with hot cocoa, cider and cookies. All the residents left with their very own pumpkins.
