It's always great when there is a wonderful event in the North Country, and its especially exciting when new ones are created! It's the "Gathering of the Jack O'Lanterns"
on the Ammonoosuc River
coming up this Sunday evening, October 30th
at 6 p.m. Our Littleton office at 11 Riverglen Lane
is located near the river bank, and we are so pleased that our neighbors at Littleton Bike & Fitness
have come up with the great idea, and are working in tandem with the Littleton Area Chamber of Commerce to organize and promote the event.
Here's the scooop – Littleton Bike & Fitness
is collecting carved Jack O'Lanterns on Saturday and Sunday (10/29 and 10/30), and onSunday evening, they are going out on to the Ammonoosuc River and placing the Jack O'Lanterns on the flat rocks in the river and lighting them! It should be a beautiful scene in the evening, in the river, and just behind the historic Main Street (as an aside, this video shows some of the Main Street and some about the Piano Project and the Weathervane Theatre.)
There should be some great opportunities to take photos from the Cottage Street bridge, Riverglen Lane and the Covered Bridge
that leads up to Main Street nearMiller's Fare Café & Bakery
