The annual Project Pumpkin is taking place again for the 2019 Halloween Season. This Sunday, October 27, 2019, Rockland High School is running a fun filled indoor trick or treating opportunity for children. Along with indoor trick or treating, children will have the opportunity to play games and do face painting in the school gym. The haunted hallway is another highlight of this fun filled event.
The time of the event is 5 to 7 pm. For every canned good brought, one dollar will be removed from the admission price. The prices are $5 for a child, and $2 for each additional child. For the whole family, the price is only $10. Parents are free!
Rockland encourages everyone to attend this fun event! Here are some pictures from last year.
