Keep shining, beautiful one. The world needs your light. ~Author Unknown
Arthur, Illinois, the heart of Amish Country, boasts this spectacular Pumpkin House. With more than 300 pumpkins decorated by school kids, business folks, volunteers, and others, this display at the Association of Commerce building is lit nightly for a week from Oct. 31 to Nov. 1.
Wonderful! And now you’ve reminded me that my favorite aunt used to call me “Punkin.”
HaHa, I regularly call Dallas that (seeing as how his coat is a perfect color match for Autumn in general!!)
Oh Debbie, you already know my love, adoration, obsession, and affection for pumpkins so when I saw this post (and photograph) I just about died! What a faaaaaaaaaaaabulous display of pumpkins! I actually clicked to enlarge the image so that I could see each and every pumpkin face!
Spectacular Pumpkin House, indeed!
I wonder how long it took them to carve all those pumpkins, and how soon they start doing carving before they display it?
Thanks so much for the smiles today, my friend:) Loved this! X
Hope you’re enjoying a fantastic Sunday!
You know, Ron, I was thinking of you when I saw this pumpkin display and knew you’d LOVE it as I do!
This is the first time I’ve seen the Pumpkin House. Who knows, it might be the first time they’ve done it (though I doubt it because it just looks too “seasoned” to be a first!). As to how long it took to carve all these beauties, I have no clue. Nor do I know what they do with all these pumpkins once the display culminates. But aren’t they HAPPY?? (well, some of them anyway!) xoxo
Gosh, I bet that’s spooky when it’s lit up at night! Maybe they all come to life and start rolling around the town… 😱
HaHa, that sounds like something a writer would say! Great mind-picture there, FF!
What an amazing display, Debbie. Really liked the quote- an encouragement to keep on shining (or at least trying) when darkness surrounds us. Even if we’re creepy carved pumpkins- light is light! 🎃💡🎃💡
Glad it resonated with you, Virginia! Yes, especially in these shorter daylight hours of Fall and Winter, light is crucial!
