Come join us for seasonal fun at the Great Pumpkin Carve on October 19-21, 2017. The Great Pumpkin Carve is the perfect way to get in the fall spirit and look at wonderful pieces of hand-crafted art. This open air festival features more than 60 local artists who carve huge pumpkins. These talented carvers sculpt pumpkins that sometimes weigh up to 400 pounds! Pumpkins will be lit and displayed at the end of the carving on Thursday night and then again on Friday and Saturday. The Great Pumpkin Carve includes entertainment for adults and children alike, and is a family friendly event. For the adults we offer live music from local bands throughout the festival, raffle prizes, festival food and more. For the children we offer a haunted trail, hayride and other fun activities. Admission is $10 for adults; $5 for children; free for children 6 and under. CFHS members are free with membership card. The event begins at 5 pm and ends at 9 pm on Thursday and Friday with extended hours on Saturday from 3 pm to 9 pm. Please visit our website at www.greatpumpkincarve.com for more information.
