Keene Pumpkin Festival

Keene Pumpkin FestivalEvery October in Keene, New Hampshire.  Local families and visitors from afar are all welcome to participate by bringing a carved pumpkin to display at the Keene Pumpkin Festival. Rows of bleachers line the main street and hold thousands of jack-o-lanterns.  And at the town square, a huge scaffold is erected to hold a tower full of pumpkins. Last year there were 16,186 lit jack-o-lanterns- quite a sight!

  1. But apparently they didn’t break the world record. 😦 This year they had 29,381 pumpkins, and needed more than 32,000 to set a record. So close!
