Canal-O-Ween is back with lots of Jack-O-Lantern carving and fun for all!
Imagine walking along the beautiful Delaware Canal running through the historic borough of Yardley on a crisp fall day just after Halloween. As the sun sets in the salmon sky and the twilight settles in, dozens of carved pumpkins, flickering with warm light guide your way forward for a half mile. It’s quiet, serene and natural, back to the origins of Halloween and All Souls Day.
Canal-O-Ween kicks-off with the Carve-O-Thon, in which over 100 carvers are expected to carve over 150+ Jack-O-Lanterns in three hours, will be held at the Rivermawr Green at the northwest corner of Morgan and Maple in Yardley Borough from 1:00-4:00pm on October 30th. Treats, cider and some fun surprises for kids await! Judges will pick the top three youth and adult pumpkins, as well as a Grand Carving Champion on Halloween evening, with prizes for all the winners.
Canal-O-Ween week features the daily lighting of all pumpkins along the canal north of the Afton Avenue bridge for 1/4 mile. Rain or shine, the 150+ Jack-O-Lanterns are lit at 5:45 each evening and typically stay lit for 2-3 hours thereafter.
