Halloween celebrations in Port Washington will take center stage on Saturday, Oct. 28.
    They begin with the final farmers market of the season from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on East Main Street between Wisconsin and Franklin streets. Live music will be provided by Caribbean Eclipse.
    Children attending the market are encouraged to wear costumes, and to participate in Harvest at the Market on the far east end of Main Street, near Dockside Deli, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    Youngsters can bob for apples, paint pumpkins and enjoy a game of pumpkin bowling.
    In addition, families can stop at the Port Exploreum, 118 N. Franklin St., to see master pumpkin carver Lee Saberson demonstrating the fine points of how to make pumpkins come to life from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
    Youngsters can also trick or treat at downtown merchants from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participating businesses will display a pumpkin poster in their windows.
    Trick or treat will be held in Port Washington from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday. Residents offering treats to youngsters are encouraged to turn on their front porch lights.
    Port Washington High School students will participate in trick or treat, but instead of candy they will be collecting nonperishable food items for the Food Pantry.
    And students at Lincoln Elementary School will also be trick or treating for UNICEF, collecting donations to go toward this charity.
    Two years ago, students at the school raised more than $1,200 through this effort. dailypress
