About the event
Fun for the whole family! Come show us your skills and see if you will be our first pumpkin carver master! Your spoils: A $50 gift card to your favorite store; Through The Veil, a certificate with your name on it, and of course bragging rights from now until forever!
We will be breaking up the contestants into two groups; ages 0-14, and ages 15 and up. There will be one winner and prize for each of the two groups. Winners will be chosen by votes and voting will be done by everyone who attends the event.
To make it fair for everyone we won't be allowing any stencils, patterns, or other cheats. We will provide pumpkins, markers to draw your designs, pumpkin scoopers for the guts, and of course knives to carve! You will get 1 hour for carving your pumpkin and then we vote!
We will have both fires in the backyard lit for warmth and will be providing hot apple cider. Feel free to bring treats and snacks to share if you wish, blankets, chairs, etc. We are working out a back up plan for inclement weather such as a light rain (hoping for tents or a covering of some sort) and we will let everyone know what that is and if we need to implement it. Of course if we need to cancel in the event of a torrential downpour or what have you, we will refund tickets.
Each pumpkin being carved will need a separate ticket to participate and will have it's own entry into the contest. So if you have two children but wish for them to share a pumpkin that will be just one ticket fee. Your $15 ticket fee helps cover the costs for this event and as such we will be closing down ticket sales on Thursday October 11th so that we can acquire the last of the pumpkins. We can only accept cancellations with a full refund for this event through October 8th. After that we can not provide a refund. Thanks so much for understanding!
We will have an onsite restroom for October's events.
