Folks at the Public Functionary are getting into the Halloween spirit this weekend at their two-day, kid-friendly benefit party. During this time the space, which opened this past spring, will be hosting a large display of jack-o-lanterns created by local artists. The installation will grow this week leading up to the happening, as revelers are invited to commission pumpkins online to be carved or painted for $25 (requests will be accepted at fundly.com/great-pumpkin). The family-friendly gathering will also boast trick-or-treating stations, spooky tunes from DJs, face-painting, photography, and other fun activities. Come in costume.
Thu., Oct. 31, 4-10 p.m.; Fri., Nov. 1, 5-10 p.m., 2013
