Pumpkin Festival Mural.

3D Pumpkin Show Mural

There is a large mural in downtown Circleville that is painted in the trompe l'oeil (deceive the eye) style, making it appear three dimensional and very realistic. It depicts townspeople getting ready for the city's annual Pumpkin Show, which is a large festival held every October. The mural was painted at least 10 years ago and is still in excellent condition. It is on the side of a building, and from a distance it seems as if you can walk right through the arch.

Notable for its time-jump depiction of "Pumpkin Man" on rollerblades on the right side of the arch.
