Keene Pumpkin Festival
Keene, NH - A few weeks ago I went to the 20th anniversary Keene Pumpkin Festival. Every year they try to beat the record of the most Jack O'lanterns in one place, so far they broke the record eight times. This year they had 22,943 pumpkins; the record is held by Boston with 30,128 set in 2006. This is the tower of pumpkins at the end of the street.
This is the big pumpkin at the top of the tower.
It is encouraged to bring carved pumpkins to add to the count.
If you didn't bring your own pumpkin, you can buy one at the festival.
I think this one had too much to drink.
This very large pumpkin was carved into an old man.
A Moon Face pumpkin.
I took this photo with this gentleman next to it so you can get an idea of the size.
A Pumpkin Totem.
I took many photos at the festival, too many to choose just a few. Tomorrow I will post more.
