This year, I won a jack o’lantern carving contest by carving a penis into a pumpkin. It took a while to sculpt out the individual veins, but I was pretty happy with the end result. Then, two days later, my penis pumpkin started to mold and smell funky, so I had to throw it out. Dealing with one pumpkin was difficult enough, so I can only imagine what the artists at The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze must go through.
Every year for 25 nights in October and early November at Van Cortlandt Manor in New York, a group of professional pumpkin artists get together and create a lit up spectacle made entirely out of jack o’lanterns. 5,000 gourds are murdered to create a Halloween wonderland complete with a tunnel of love, huge spiders, jack in the boxes, venus pumpkin traps, and dinosaurs. Whether you are a pumpkin enthusiast, or just want a couple of good Instagrams to make people jealous of your life, you should probably grab a pumpkin spiced latte, a cute boy, and check this crazy mess out while you still have time. You can grab tickets here.via ] [ via ]
