Pumpkinpalooza Is Taking Over Astoria!
By Ilija Sekulovski
Unless you have blinders on, even then, it’s pretty hard to miss that our favorite merchants are bursting at the seams and sidewalks with all things pumpkin. We must not fight this magically enchanted vegetable, after all, it did transform into an epic carriage for a certain princess.
We’ve searched all our little piece of the globe and came back with three (because four’s too many and two’s not enough) mind and body remedies for the season that includes, you guessed it…Pumpkins.
Greenbay Market Place:
Cliché or not, there’s just something nostalgic, soothing and innocent about carving a pumpkin. And, on the plus side it’s a great way to let out some aggression. Adult supervision may be required for some adults. Greenbay has pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, pick up a few and have a carving party.
