Outhouse Orchard hosts Halloween event
e following is from Gail Pantezzi, co-chair of
the Halloween event:
It was a picture perfect, blue-sky day, with
the warmth of the sun enveloping all the
North Salem School District children and
their families as they made their way up the
hill to the Outhouse apple orchard and Corn
Maze, stopping to play games and listen to
the Music Makers, the Middle School-High
School Pop-Rock Band.
e photos show some of the costumes
worn by children and parents who were really
into the spirit of Halloween. e three family
costume contest winners were the beekeeper-
parents with their baby honeybee, the soft-
ball ensemble, and the pair of gira es! Prizes
were provided by Alice O’Leary Kerrigan,
owner of e Blazer Pub and Tom and Dawn
Christopher, owners of Front Street Cellar
Wine Shop, in Croton Falls.
Guessing the weight of the enormous 475
pound pumpkin fascinated adults and chil-
dren. e winner was Stephanie Novak who
guessed 474 pounds. A pizza certi cate to
Frank’s Pizzeria in Croton Falls was the prize,
along with a bottle of wine provided by Front
Street Cellar Wine Shop.
e band members very creatively provided
music enhanced by their seamless mixing of
instrument parts by band members who were
in quarantine. Many smiled at the sight of the
toddlers jiggling all around and creating their
own dance moves.
e Outhouse Family and their employees
made this all possible because of their gener-
osity in giving the town’s families the use of
their farm. e Republican Town Committee
sponsored the event as a non-political occa-
sion to provide Halloween in the time of a
pandemic. A group of volunteers pulled to-
gether in a few weeks to create 250 ribboned
bags of candy and provided activities. Event
Co-Chairmen Howard Hellwinkel and Gail
Pantezzi are thankful to: Ayden, Sal, John and
Bob, Elaine, Bill, Paul & Joan, Elina & Sam,
Janice and Ryan and Brett, Nzingha, Carly,
Briana and Katherine, Mary Cate and Larry,

ria, Kurt, and Bill.
