Pumpkin festivals are a terrific source for pumpkin carving ideas. These pictures were taken at the annual Keene Pumpkin Festival in New Hampshire (U.S.). Each year, the city of Keene tries to break the world record for most carved pumpkins assembled in one spot (a record it held as recently as 2003). Creative people from miles around bring their carved pumpkins to the festival, hoping to be a part of history. If you attend such festivals, all you have to do is keep your eyes open to acquire a multitude of new ideas.
The pictures below represent just a small sampling -- some of jack-o'-lanterns I most enjoyed at this particular festival. This is just one part of a series on pumpkin carving ideas that I have put together for my readers.
