North Shore religion news in brief

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Marblehead will host its second annual Great Pumpkin Carving Contest beginning with a Great Pumpkin Carving on Sunday, Oct. 28, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at 28 Mugford St., Marblehead. The public is welcome to participate, and carving tools and snacks will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own pumpkins, but extras will be available for those unable to pick one up beforehand. After the carving event, pumpkins will be taken outside for display, then stored inside until Oct. 31. Any and all carved pumpkins will be accepted for the contest as long as they are delivered in time for trick-or-treating hours on Wednesday, Oct. 31. On Halloween night, the pumpkins will decorate the church lawn, and trick-or-treaters and passers-by will be able to vote for their favorite pumpkin. There is no charge for entering a pumpkin or voting. Also, Marblehead Gardens is offering a $1 discount off any 10-pound pumpkin (or more) if it will be used in the contest.
