Pumpkin Walk

Every Halloween the city of Syracuse, Utah puts on a spectacular display of pumpkins, carved and painted!  It’s one of our family traditions to attend The Pumpkin Walk every October. I love to walk among the jack-o-lanterns with my grand babies.  Bundled up for the cold, with red cheeks and noses,  they run from one pumpkin to the next, oohing and awing and telling the rest of the family, “Look at this one!  Look at this one!”

The kids get so excited when they find a pumpkin carved with their favorite cartoon characters. Nearly every character you can imagine is there to be found. There are also scary pumpkins, funny ones, cute, silly, odd, artistic and pretty ones. Some even have beautiful, realistic works of art carved into them!  It is obvious that some have been carved by children while others were carved by serious artists. Members of the community do the carving and then donate their work for families to enjoy at the annual Pumpkin Walk.

Pumpkin carving is another one of our family traditions. We like to grow our own in the garden and then harvest and carve them with all kinds of fun faces!

So, just in time for Halloween pumpkin carving, I thought I would share the photos I took at this year’s Pumpkin Walk. I hope you find some inspiration to carve a pumpkin or two of your own!

Here are the Scary Ones!

    Those are so cool! I love to look at the talent each one displays! I have two boys who would go nuts over the TMNT one! Thanks for sharing!
