“Pumpkin painting, pumpkin giveaways — but those are not for eating.  But we will have plenty of food that day.  We will have chocolatiers from the Chocolate Clinic.  We’ll have Las Bugambilias, which is a great Mexican restaurant in our district.   Chewy’s food truck will be available, as well as Sweet Tooth, our candy shop in the South Street District.”
