Before I go ahead and take a leave for today, here are some intricately detailed pumpkin carvings from Jack-o-lantern Spectacular to get the creative juices flowing. I'll get back to what have been working on for few weeks now, and which I can't wait to share with you all. So don't forget to stop by here tomorrow. For now enjoy the pumpkin art.
What started as a family fall event to raise funds for the Oxford School department in Massachusetts by the founders of Passion for Pumpkins and their partners quickly gained popularity among pumpkin art enthusiasts and has been attended by over a million patrons. They have participated in solo shows and shows in association with The Bayside Expo Center, Pawtucket Red Sox at McCoy Stadium and The R.I. Zoological Society at the Roger Williams Park Zoo. In 1999 the event was awared a “Local Legacy” award by the Library of Congress.
Every year, skilled artists get their hands dirty to produce masterpieces carved with portraits and landscapes. Their pumpkins display is a treat for the senses and entertainment for the entire family.
