GREAT ADIRONDACK PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST !!
Each year in the Adirondacks some of the most experienced pumpkin carvers come together for an intense evening of pumpkin carving! This year the event was held in Lake Placid, NY at the residence of Cathy & Wayne Johnston. This is the 20th anniversary for this much anticipated Halloween event! Unlike past contests, this years pumpkins were judged based on their facial expressions and the complex range of emotions that can only be expressed using a small knife and a lot of determination. There were no losers! Some of these images may scare you - Others may bring tears of joy (or laughter)! The winners are showcased in our online Pumpkin Gallery. (We'd like to thank our panel of judges for their valuable insights into the human psyche). Happy Halloween!
