You can always tell an artist by the way they carve a pumpkin. Most folks just make a face – triangle eyes, an upside down triangle for the nose, and some square teeth.
But artists see all types of possibilities in a pumpkin, and the results are fabulous sculptures masquerading as seasonal decorations. Check out local artisans” versions of pumpkin carving, and see their creations glowing with candles.
Live music and hayrides add to the fun. The Great Pumpkin Carve runs from 5pm to 9pm on the Chadds Ford Historical Society grounds, 1736 Creek Road (Old PA Route 100), in Chadds Ford, Pa. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for those 7 to 17, and children under 6 are free. For more information, call 610.388.7376 or visit www.chaddsfordhistory.org
