When life gives you lemons, make lemonade — or in the case of the 2020 Amazing Pumpkin Carve, turn a walk-around event into a drive-thru! :- D
Public poetry had a place at The Amazing Pumpkin Carve again this year in the form of six “gravestones” I made, complete with epitaphs. Many thanks to the Hopewell Valley Arts Council for including them! They were placed near the entry of “Pumpkin Row” and looked appropriately spooky — especially at night.
(For a little information on how I made the poem-signs, you can go back in time a few days to The Amazing Pumpkin Carve 2020, part 1, if you wish.)
After the gravestones came a haunted house,…
…the “welcoming committee”,…
…and then the pumpkins themselves! Here are just a few that caught my eye:
Kudos to the Arts Council for bringing some outdoor fun to Central New Jersey during a year notable — alas! — for many cancelled cultural events! The final tally showed that more than 2,500 carloads of people viewed this amazing display!
