Do you enjoy fall festivals? I do. I value fall festivals for the color and creativity they display. The Ohio Gourd Show is one of my favorites. Few events I've attended in my lifetime can rival it, in terms of creating a lasting impression on me. Of course, that probably just tells you what an uneventful life I've led....
But I also attend the Keene Pumpkin Festival in New Hampshire annually. This year, it's being held October 20, from noon to 8:30 pm. The pictures in my gallery of pumpkin faces come from the 2008 festival. Among the thousands of pumpkin faces on display, there was something for everyone: funny and scary, humble and elegant. During presidential election years in the U.S., you'll even find the candidates there -- not in person, but as pumpkin faces, as you'll see if you browse my photos.
Tired of decorating your porch with traditional jack o' lanterns? Then view my pictures of jack o' lanterns for some new ideas. If you're thinking, "How different can one pumpkin face be from another?" then you really need to visit a pumpkin festival. You'll be surprised by just how many variations are possible on that (seemingly) simple theme, the pumpkin face.
