This weekend we went to the Highwood Pumpkin Fest with our carpenter/bff Sean and his kids. You might recognize the name from HGTV’s “Pumpkin Wars” which is airing Wednesday (Halloween) night at 9/8 central. We had no idea that HGTV was sponsoring the event, which aimed to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for most lit pumpkins. It was fun, but totally packed and the kids only lasted about an hour or two before the crush of the crowd was too much for them. We didn’t actually see the pumpkins lit, but had a great time carving a few.
It was sooooo crowded. We packed up the kids and headed home, but I I found a few pictures of the record breaking lighting.
Beautiful huh? I wish we could have stayed until the end, but it was a bit too much, and too late, for the littles.
Lucy looks terrified, right?. Don’t worry, we soothed them with ice cream and cheeseburgers afterwards. I’d say its fun family event but we might try to go earlier next year to skip the crowds.
Are you guys looking forward to Halloween?
