Saturday morning is Putnam Provisions last Coffee & Cars Event! Plan to park your classic or otherwise awesome car in the Holiday Inn Express back lot for all to enjoy, then enjoy a FREE eight ounce coffee by stopping inside the shop at Area 34…but there’s more! The last Putnam Farmers Market of the 2023 season will be going on at the same time in the field right across the way, and it’s also Kids Day! Kids will get $4.00 in tokens to spend as they please at the market. It’s going to be a great (and unseasonably warm) day! Then, right across the street at the library at 10:00am will be a semi-scary Saturday Morning Movie. Join the librarians for Monster House, rated PG. All of the thrills, none of the chills!
Saturday evening in downtown Hurricane is the annual Main Street Trick-or-Treat from 6:00-8:00pm, as the City of Hurricane closes down the road to traffic between A-Z Storage and Belknap Dough Company for a free, family-friendly trick-or-treat experience. Local businesses will be set up in front of their shops or handing out candy from their decorated trunks while festive music is played!
If you or your kids just can’t get enough of the Zoology Zone Science Center, Andy is partying ALL DAY LONG Saturday with spooky science experiments, costume contest, reptile shows, face painting, and so much more, followed by a movie night! It’s going to be a blast, but tickets are going FAST so don’t wait!  Find Halloween Bash at Zoology Zone Science Center on Facebook for more details and the link to obtain tickets.
On Sunday at 5:30pm come to Forrest Burdette United Methodist Church in Hurricane for a family event called Flick or Treat! ALL families are welcome for pizza, an indoor trick or treat, and movie. No need to RSVP! Just show up with your costumes and comfy seats for the movie in the gym. If anyone wants to decorate a treat table and help pass out candy, call and ask for more information! 304-562-5903.
Make it a great Halloween Weekend, Putnam County!
