Spooktacular Stroll

Driving to Roger Williams Park Zoo to attend one of the most AWESOME displays of talent I have ever seen, I got out of my car and followed the crowd toward the entrance.

Celebrating 30 years of Halloween "magic,"which included 5,000+ intricately carved pumpkins, each representing legends, myths, fairy tales, infamous people, the trail was, in fact, beyond mystifying and magical.

 Regardless of which direction I looked, there were pumpkins!  Following the winding path engulfed in an eerie, smoky haze which was odorless, each segment revealed another pumpkin theme and it's related music...Harry Potter, Video Gaming, Westerns, Classical, Star Wars, Cartoons, Fairy Tales, etc.

These are all hand carved!!!

Two of my favorite characters...Sherlock Holmes and Watson...

Harry Potter and Friends...


Of course, the superhero collection HAD to have the Hulk in green...:)

just seeing, saying, and sharing...

My word!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!! Isn't it something what some folks can do with a simple pumpkin?! Now that's talent, to say the least. I wonder if they all carve with wood too? ~Andrea xoxo

I have never seen pumpkin carving like this - wow! We usually do something that I consider pretty sophisticated from one of those pattern books, but I am embarrassed to even mention that in relation to these masterpieces. Thanks so much for sharing with us!
What a great display to see, JP. I will definitely need to remember this and next year maybe we can visit our RI grandchildren around Halloween.
