It seems like every other movie released these days is coming out in 3-D. And while sometimes that adds to the entertainment, a lot of times it's nothing more than a gimmick that just adds to the cost of a night out ($3 for 3-D glasses, anyone?). So it's refreshing that something 3-D is actually free.
OK. You're not going to reach out in front of you to grab nonexistent raindrops, and you won't flinch at bullets seemingly headed for your face, but you will have some seasonally appropriate fun when artist Andrew Gertler demonstrates the art of 3-D pumpkin carving next month at Hicks Nurseries in Old Westbury.
Gertler, a professional sculptor who works in temporary mediums like sand, ice, snow -- and pumpkins, will be carving from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 9, 10, 16 and 17. No need to register; just stop by to pick up a few pointers and learn from the master.
While you're there, check out this year's Otto the Ghost display, and bring a can of food for LI Cares.
No $3 glasses required.
