BERLIN, N.H. (AP) - Berlin, N.H., is holding a street party celebrating all things pumpkin to kick off its annual RiverFire Celebration this year.
The city's stores and streets will be filled with autumn and Halloween games, promotions and food on Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., leading up to the illuminated piers and pumpkins along the Androscoggin River.
Attendees can follow a pumpkin trail to win a free RiverFire T-shirt, take part in pumpkin carving and win prizes for the most creative pumpkins.
Participants who carve pumpkins on Main Street can then take their jack-o-lanterns up to the bridge to be illuminated at RiverFire.
Gates for RiverFire, in its 10th year, open at 2 p.m. with free admission to the Northern Forest Heritage Park.
