Please join TAKO on Saturday, October 18th from 4-6:30 pm at Emma Harvet Square located on the Peninsula in Iowa City for our Annual Pumpkin Carving Event. We have plenty of carving kits and pumpkin patterns and supplies. Bring your own pumpkin or carve one of ours! We will also have other Halloween and Fall related activities!
This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. A light snack of caramel apples and hot apple cider will be provided. Advance registration is requested, but not required. If you plan to bring a group of 6 or more, e-mail email@example.com; this will help us to plan for equipment and food preparation.
Remember to dress appropriately; we may get wet and dirty! Layers are always a great option for cold weather conditions. Bring a hat, gloves, and any other items you may need to be comfortable in the outdoors. You may want to bring a binoculars and a camera!
To get to the event, take Foster Road west from Dubuque Street towards the Thornberry Off-Leash Dog Park. The park is located at the corner of Foster Road and Walker Circle. Off street parking is available, but limited. People are encouraged to ride bikes to the event, walk or take the city bus. The Manville Heights bus stop at the park.
Don’t’ put your poles away just yet- some of the best fishing of the year is right around the corner. Using live bait, like minnows, and moving your bait slowly are keys when fishing in cooler water. In the fall, warmer air temperatures drive fish to shallow areas to find warmer water. When air temperature get cooler, they tend to go down deeper in the water.
Combining a fishing and fall camping trip when the leaves are turning makes for a perfect outdoor weekend.
