LAST UPDATED 10/13/2009
I've missed the Milford Pumpkin Festival once or twice (including last year) due to other commitments. So I was thrilled to discover that this year the date for the festival was wide open, with regard to my schedule.
I quickly contacted the event planners to see if they would be interested in having me set up shop on the Oval in Milford, NH to spend the day just carving pumpkins for later display at the pumpkin lighting. They were thrilled to hear from me but weren't sure if I was going to attend so they made arrangements with the local Destination Imagination (DI) group to set up a booth and have kids carve pumpkins for a small donation. They invited me to join up with them
When I contacted Sandra about joining up with her she was excited and plans were set. I showed up at 8am and shortly after Sandra appeared and we set up our double booth. Knowing I had a lot of work ahead of me ((I wanted at least 6 pumpkins carved), I got right to work. Two of the pumpkins I was carving I was donating to DI for them to raffle off.
In all, I did get 6 pumpkins carved. 2 for donation, another I gave as a gift and a 4th, also a gift, for a local merchant (every year I pick 2-3 local merchants that I do business with, and I carve them a pumpkin with their company logo on it.
On the left is the photo album. I hope to get more pumpkins carved and to update this album throughout the Halloween season, so keep watch!
