On the eve of Halloween (Wednesday, October 30), join the Sag Harbor Historical Society for a very special seasonal gathering.

From 5 to 6 p.m., the Society's Annie Cooper Boyd House will be home to Annie's Field of Jack-O-Lanterns, where attendees can bring their already carved Jack-O-Lanterns to be showcased in a spectacular sight. After illuminating the masterpieces with battery-operated candles or tea lights, all ages will gather on the front porch for group photos, and then, along with the carved creations, event-goers will march through the house, slowly and softly, to make sure not to bother any resting ethereal occupants.

"At the Annie Cooper Boyd House this year we'd like to start a new tradition. We are inviting community members to come with a lighted jack-o-lantern to help light up the Annie Cooper Boyd House on Main Street for Halloween," Nancy Remkus of the Sag Harbor History Society shared. "This will be an opportunity to celebrate the season together."

The evening will also include light refreshments, as well as live music from Remkus - who will treat attendees to some Halloween tunes - that weather depending might even spark some dancing on the front lawn.

"It is really special when community comes together to celebrate the holidays and special days like Halloween. The glow of the jack-o-lantern on the porch, the wreath adorning the front door, the candles or menorah glowing in the window," Remkus expressed. "It reminds us that life is to be celebrated. Far too often we forget to take that extra step to come together as a community in the spirit of the holidays - whatever holiday or season you might celebrate."

Admission to Annie's Field of Jack-O-Lantern is a $5 donation per family, which supports the Historical Society whose mission is to "promote and encourage public education and appreciation with respect to the history of the Village of Sag Harbor, and to foster and otherwise work for the preservation of the historic buildings, sites and other materials."

"So come on down with a jack-o-lantern and let's light up Sag Harbor for a good old-fashioned Halloween!" Remkus added.

Annie Cooper Boyd House is located at 174 Main Street in Sag Harbor. For more information, visit sagharborhistorical.org.
