Cabot Shores Spooky Halloween Celebration a Success!

Candy Apples, spooky costumes, bubble chasers and pizza makers were all there at Cabot Shores
to celebrate Halloween. There was pretty a  intense apple bobbing competition along with a team effoert
to carve numerous creepy looking  jack0-lanterns.

The main star of the show was our brand new wood fired pizza oven. Everyone was able
to select their own toppings where we had another little competition to see who could make
up the best combination. Personally, I though that Ali, an Iranian friend of Cabot Shores made
the best one! We’re already looking forward to next years Halloween Celebration.
