Fiery fun at Petrolia Discovery


Penelope Skene and her daughter, Jade, were among those looking at the dozens of carved pumpkins at Fiery Faces Thursday night.

The fundraiser for Petrolia Kiwanis causes showcases pumpkins carved by the organizers and children from around Petrolia.

Fiery Faces began 15 years ago when Cheryl Veary inspired by a similar event in New York State, carved a few pumpkins with friends. The Halloween event has grown to a three-day festival.

Veary says families can see the display between 6 pm and 8 pm tonight, Saturday and Sunday. There is a family fun day at the Petrolia Y from 11 am to 3 pm, with pumpkin carving, a dunk tank, games and crafts for kids.
