ARE THERE REAL PUMPKINS?
Absolutely. Each event has over 1000 live, fresh pumpkin throughout the course and festival. Some carved, some painted, some just displayed in their natural beauty. We also have thousands of pounds of giant pumpkins grown by local farmers and carved by highly skilled giant pumpkin sculptors. If you're lucky, you might even see one of these artists in action, as they are on site carving most nights.
The majority of our larger art installations are made with hand-carved artificial pumpkins. Since these pumpkins don't rot, they allow our artists to design and build taller, more breathtaking structures that can be enjoyed throughout the entire festival. We have used over 3,000 of these magical pumpkins to create the sculptures and scenes your be immersed in at Pumpkin Nights.
