The Village of Islandia held its Pumpkin Fest on the grounds of Village Hall on October 24 as more than 600 people came down to enjoy the Halloween-themed festivities. Throughout the event, children decorated pumpkins and took part in a Halloween costume parade and contest. They also joined their families as they went on hayrides and walked through a chilling Haunted Castle that kept everyone on their toes. Islandia’s own “Joe the Singing Bus Driver” was there to tell spooky stories and sing Halloween songs for the children.

The village also provided guests with hot cocoa, cider and cookies. Each resident left with their very own pumpkin.
