Pumpkin Carving Contest

Happy hour
Please note: This event has already occurred.
The Hotel Helix's annual pumpkin-carving competition attracts large crowds, and though it doesn't begin until 6 p.m., it pays to arrive early: Only 30 pumpkins, all pre-scooped, are available for carvers to show their artistic flair. (Knives and tools are provided.) Start planning your ideas now, because stakes are high: Prizes include a weekend stay at the boutique hotel for the best design and a $50 lounge gift certificate for the spookiest. Even if you're not participating, there are rewards for showing up: Happy hour, which includes $2 PBRs, $3 Yuenglings, $6 Cosmos and $7 burgers, is extended until 8 p.m.
