Punkin’ paintin’



It was a warm, Sunday afternoon and the leaves in the forest embracing Bicentennial Park were showing off their vibrant autumn colors in the bright sun, as families gathered outside a pavilion and enjoyed a day of creative play. Dressed up as Pikachu, Nisha Ganguly, 7, of Grand Blanc Township, works with pink paint while little mermaid Adrianne Ouellette, 8, of Mundy Township, applies stickers to her vampire witch pumpkin. The Grand Blanc Parks and Recreation Commission sponsored the Halloween-themed event, and everyone who attended in costume received a goodie bag. Photos by Lania Rocha
