Just thought I would share that an attraction located a few minutes from my home is going to be on the "Ellen DeGeneres" show this coming Monday. The crew just showed up unannounced this past week and filmed a segment to be aired the day before Halloween.
There is a Victorian home located in Kenova, W VA and each year, they carve and then display over 3500 pumpkins on the house, in the yard, on specially built walls (2 stories high!), around the trees, along the street...everywhere they can find a space. We have been the last two years and it is rather amazing to see all the work that goes into this....all for fun, no profit.
Each pumpkin is carved from a pattern drawn and collected by the man of the house. School groups, churchs, businesses, etc. all volunteer to carve. Every single pumpkin is lit with an electic bulb. I will tell you that if you wait until the day or so after Halloween as we did the first time we went, it begins to get a little smelly from the mushy pumpkins. *eww*
Last year, we went the night before Halloween and they were all still pretty fresh and he had added a lot to the display.
Anyway, if you want to see a pretty neat seasonal display, tune into the "Ellen" show Monday.
Here are a few pics I took last year:
