Get Ready For The Glow Factor Tonight!

Los Alamos Arts Council volunteers Sam Nasise and Sophia Salazar gut pumpkins during the carving party held this morning at the Smith’s Marketplace. The pumpkins were carved to be included in today’s Pumpkin Glow. The event will be held 6-9 p.m. at the Fuller Lodge lawn. The event is free but donations will be accepted. The Los Alamos Arts Council has held the event for 14 years. It has become a staple in the MainStreet’s Halloweekend festivies. This year, the event earned the Food Network magazine’s attention. It was one of the events the magazine highlighted for things to do in New Mexico in its October issue. Board Member Lori Dauelsberg founded the event and has organized it every year.
