The Great Pumpkin Carve - "Virtual" for 2020

The 2020 "Virtual Pumpkin Carve" event is FREE of charge.  All we ask is that carvers send their photos and list of carvers directly to cfpumpkincarve@gmail.com.  You can be as creative as you want with props and backdrops.  With so much canceled this year, why not make this a fun filled family event.  We are hoping that 2021 will allow us to be back to our regular layout, but for now, join us in keeping the Chadds Ford Historical Society alive.

 

Below are the guidelines and instuctions for the carvers this year. Good luck and happy carving.

* Note: Carvers need to provide their own pumpkins, any shape, size or color will be allowed.  H. G. Haskell, the owner of SIW Vegetables in Chadds Ford and supplier of our pumpkins, has many shapes and sizes for purchase.  He also has some enormous ones that can be special ordered by texting him directly on his cell 610-715-7688.  A wonderful way to support a local business and get a great pumpkin, too!

 

Dates:

October 1st - 20th : Carvers will submit their carved "creations" by emailing photos, the carvers' names and the city & state where the carving took place to cfpumpkincarve@gmail.com

 

October 21st - 31st : Starting October 21st, photos of the carved pumpkins will be posted to our Facebook page for "spectators" to see this year's carvings and VOTE for their favorite pumpkins through Oct 31st.

 

How to Vote for Your Favorite Pumpkin:

There will be 2 ways for "spectators" to vote this year via Facebook...
