Halloween Magic -- 2,400 Carved Pumpkins



All lit up, despite the rain and miserable cold, a huge number of folks came out to see the night time results that John Pringle and friends made by setting up the first of the 2,400 carved pumpkins --- all in support of the Children's Wish Foundation. This is the third and certainly
most pumpkinly year yet! ! !



Here are some more photos, but believe me, they
don't do justice to the magic that occurred that evening.

Thanks John.

Beside our wonderfully witchy and ghoully porch, made and set up by Donna and her daughter Ellie, and our student worker, Kiara, sit a number of pumpkins.









Here is a view toward the lake and you can just about see the glow of all those faces way into the distance.

Below on the right, is a photo without flash, hard to see but might give you some small indication of the magic of the sight.





These amazing pumpkins actually climbed up into this tree next to our library!

WOW! ! ! ! !








I can't wait until next year, and I hope all and sundry in this area put it on their calendar for
next Halloween!
