I am speechless. Literally jaw dropping display and one of the coolest things I have ever seen.

Absolutely awesome.

I can't begin to imagine how many days of carving was involved to produce an incredible display such as that. Absolutely fantastic, certainly worthy of having a television crew to cover the event! Absolutely brilliant, well done! :D :D :D :D :D :!:

WOW thats amazing. :shock: :shock: Are they all real or are there some foamies in there too? How many people do you get to help carve.

Um, I'm pretty sure I'm visiting next year if it's going to be anything like this year. Let me know if you need help carving! I'm not that far :lol:

To get the display done on time and so large it takes some help. There are 2 of us on a daily basis that work on the pumpkins for 6 days straight. This year we had high school students come and help us gut the pumpkins which was helpful because it cut our gutting time in half! We gutted for 2 days, put patterns on for 2 days and it stayed cold enough that we were able to carve for 2 days without them going bad! Our goal this year was to carve 200 pumpkins like we did last year, so when we exceeded that total we were excited. Every pumpkin is real (my fakes are in the house, which there's another 30!) A local news crew did come out this year and the display was aired on tv 6 times on 2 channels!

Oh please come help! We could double the size of the display! We plan to continue this for as many years as we can!

This is incredible! And my mom thinks I am crazy! I had 32 or so in my yard (20 foamies and the rest real and all but 2 carved by me)! My hat is off to you!
