Hopewell Valley Arts Council Announces Fourth Annual Amazing Pumpkin Carve

Best in Show 2017 "Escape" by Eric Schultz

In its fourth year, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council’s Amazing Pumpkin Carve is a must-not-miss, art-filled weekend of fun in the heart of the Hopewell Valley. The Amazing Pumpkin Carve will run from Wednesday, October 10 through Sunday, October 14, 2018 at Woolsey Park in Titusville.

Visitors will be wowed by massive 150-pound pumpkin sculptures carved by local artists. New this year: the artists have access to electricity! With cool lighting and motion opportunities now added to their creations, this year’s pumpkin carve will be electrifying! Another group of creative folks will adorn scarecrows to add to the display.

The Amazing Pumpkin Carve is much more than a jaw-dropping display of artistic talent etched in enormous pumpkins. Courtyard fun will include a humongous hay bale playground, pumpkins for sale at the pumpkin patch, paint-a-pumpkin craft tent, fun photo ops, fire pits with s’more kits and cider, goodies to eat, and more! Special events throughout the weekend include a pet costume parade (Wed. and Thurs.), evening storytelling around fire pits (Fri. and Sat.), “Thriller” and “Time Warp” performed by The Pennington Studio for Dance and Creative Arts (Sat.), Hopewell Valley Fire Safety Open House (Sat.), and an ever-popular cornhole tournament (Sun.).

Don’t miss your chance to celebrate autumn in Hopewell Valley while supporting the many talented artists who call this region home. For more information and the full schedule of all this fantastic fall fun, visit the Hopewell Valley Arts Council website at www.hvartscouncil.org.
