As we're nearing the day of the Gauls and Goblins, Socrates Sculpture Park's annual Halloween Harvest Festival is upon us.
This Saturday, October 24th, Astorians will get a chance to have some Halloween fun at Socrates Park, for FREE!
There will be:

You'll also be able to enter your dog in the Annual Juried Canine Costume Contest (1pm – 2pm). Dress your little four legged friend in a costume and perhaps you'll win.
There will even be pet blessings by Urban Shaman Mama Donna, for all the lucky little canines (2pm – 3pm).
The Festival begins at 11am and ends at 3pm.
