Lynbrook High School hosted its sixth annual Night of the Pumpkins Saturday, providing an evening of fall- and Halloween-inspired decorations, games, refreshments and more.

The highlight, as in years past, was a luminous display of creatively designed jack-o-lanterns carved by students in the National Art Honor Society.

Attendees toured the magnificent exhibition of pumpkins, which quickly sold out at $5 apiece, on the high school field. Inside the building, NAHS and Japanese Club members led an assortment of activities. Students from the high school’s Virtual Enterprise class sold popcorn and autumn-themed foods were provided courtesy of the Culinary Arts Club.

Between entrance fees, pumpkins sales, activities, and a donation from the Culinary Arts Club, the event raised more than $5,700 to benefit the Island Harvest hunger relief organization, as well as the high school’s NAHS.
