If you’ve been waiting with sharpened knives since last Halloween to show off your talents as a master pumpkin carver, here’s an event that welcomes your creative slicing abilities. You could even go home with some cash.
Four Peaks Brewing Company’s annual Fall Festival includes a pumpkin-carving contest with a grand prize of $1,000, plus a gift card for $180 to use at their locations. The prizes for runners-up aren’t too shabby, either. If cutting a pumpkin isn’t your idea of fun, there’s plenty else to enjoy, including food trucks and fall-flavored beers. This seasonal shindig also has activities for the kids, like pumpkin painting. Get festive from 2 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, at the Four Peaks Tasting Room, 2401 South Wilson Street in Tempe. Admission is free. Visit www.fourpeaks.com.
