On Monday, October 31st, the Bayonne Town Center held its Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Our winners were Aidan Zieniuk, Kaitlyn Arroyo, and Cody Lindquist! Children ages 3-12 were able to show off their artistic talent by submitting their pumpkins at the Bayonne Town Center office at 8 East 22nd Street from October 14th through October 29th. These pumpkin masterpieces were displayed in the front window for passersby to admire during the Halloween season. Pumpkin designs ranged from haunted houses, to farm animals, to spiders, to the Statue of Liberty! The BTC received 31 pumpkins this year!
