They have joined forces with ArtFusion 19464, which is helping with the window decorating, as is the Pottstown MOMS Club.

On Friday, Oct. 16, a scarecrow contest will be held at the Manatawny Green mini-golf between King and High Streets and the next day, it will hold a workshop on how to build your own.

On Sunday, Oct. 18, the annual Monster Dash 5K run will be held in Riverfront Park, with registration starting at 7:30 a.m.
