MILTON, Ga. – The gals at Scoops and Just for Giggles in Crabapple are getting ready for Halloween the best way they know – by holding the annual Carvin’ in Crabapple pumpkin carving and painting event Oct. 27.

For the past four years, Karen Faber of Scoops and Megan Jamison of Just for Giggles have held the contest that last year saw more than 40 entrants in the spooky challenge.

The fun begins at Just for Giggles at 2 p.m. where kids can paint their pumpkins in all manner of Halloween spookiness. Then at 4 p.m., the action moves across the street to Scoops where the pumpkins will be displayed along Crabapple Road and judges will decide the best ones.

“This year, it’s going to be great,” said Crabapple Community Association President Peyton Jamison.

Organizers hope for more than 50 participants. Carvin’ in Crabapple is open to all ages, and entrants must provide their own pumpkins. All entrants will receive a free scoop of ice cream at Scoops.
