Last Friday we held our 7th annual Pumpkin Carving Party and it was a hair-raising, bone-chilling, fang-tastic, and spook-takular success!

We had a great time carving pumpkins, playing games, eating food from local food trucks, and hanging out with our clients, friends, family, and community.

Getting Ready for the Pumpkin Carving Party

All day Friday we worked hard to decorate, setup, and get costumed for the big event. We had people dressed up as wrestlers, Minnie Mouse, someone ‘running late’, Holly Golightly, Spiderman, and more.

Everyone was definitely in the Halloween spirit and excited to get the party started.

The Pumpkin Carving Designs Were Boo-tiful

We had a range of pumpkin carving skills at the party – from beginners to advanced. And while we did provide stencils, some got really creative with their free hand carving.

Later in the evening we had a pumpkin carving contest, where we awarded the Scariest, Most Original, and Funniest pumpkin designs (winners in order below) with an award and goody bag.

Costumes Galore!

One of the best things about the evening was all the costumes! Kids and parents both were dressed up in fun and interesting costumes. We saw Sherlock Holmes, the Incredibles Family, mermaids, Wednesday Adams, superheroes, unicorns, Peter Pan’s shadow, and so many more. Even some pets got in on the costume action!

Photobooth Fun All Night Long

In addition to all the games, pumpkin carving, and contests, we also had a fantastic Halloween-themed photobooth. Guests had a great time posing for the camera with fun props in their costumes.

Good Food from The Wandering Moose and The Crazy Waffle

Local food trucks, The Wandering Moose and The Crazy Waffle, came out to celebrate Halloween with our team and guests. They cooked ups some delicious barbeque and dessert waffles.

A Spook-takular Night of Halloween Fun

The party was a spook-takular success! We enjoyed spending time with our clients and community and loved seeing all the costumes and pumpkin carving designs. If you weren’t able to make the party this year, we hope you’ll be able to attend next year.
