7. Annual Halloween Pumpkin Impalement

The Halloween Impalement: The Toll of Time, a temporary site-specific art installation on the fence of artist Jane Greengold’s townhouse is back again this year! The artists hopes this year to “impale the most heads ever,” with 274 spikes available. Last year, over 70 pumpkin heads were impaled. After the impalement, the pumpkins are left to deteriorate, leading to a ghoulish aftermath over the course of several weeks.

If you want to participate this year, bring an already-carved pumpkin to the corner of Kane Street and Strong Place in Cobble Hill between 3 pm and 7 pm on October 31.
