The Sohanno Garden Club is holding its first community pumpkin party at the downtown common’s gazebo on Saturday evening. Those wishing to do so can bring a carved pumpkin to the common between 4 and 5:30 p.m. Candles are not allowed in the jack-o’-lanterns; glow sticks or battery-operated lights are suggested. There will be a Showcase Dance Productions performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” at 5:30 p.m., and a pumpkin stroll will follow at 6 p.m. There will also be food, games, and music.
