Live from the Pumpkin Festival
Saturday, October 20, 2012
Here is a short vlog from the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH - after dark looking at some of the jack-o-lanterns. We left before the announcement of the number of lit jack-o-lanterns. We'll find out tomorrow, perhaps.
Unofficial total is 22,700, which is probably not a record, but may have beaten the other town we are in competition with in the Pumpkin Wars that will be aired on HGTV on Halloween.
Update - official count for today (2012) is 29,381. We are just shy of the record - 30, 919, set by Highwood, Illinois last year, and just a little short of our personal best mark set in 2009 - 29,762. Ah well. I think we did really well and it was fun.
