Pumpkin House: 3,000 Jack-o-Lanterns

I was passing through a few days before they were ready, but the owners let me walk around and were very nice people. I am sure this is a pretty awesome sight to see lit up at night!

The Pumpkin House

This house is adorned every fall with around 3,000 jack-o-lanterns carved into all various kinds of things including tv/movie characters, political figures, historical figures and events, etc. It's only open a few days a year in late October.

[Donald, 03/30/2013]

The big old Victorian house is owned by the mayor. The outdoor display of hand-carved pumpkins began very modestly, decades ago, but in recent years it's ballooned into an annual mega-event. Jan. 2018: Photo added.
