Pumpkin Carving

October 22, 2009

Lawrence Education Center students carved forty-four pumpkins in preparation for the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular on
October 14, 2009. The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular was held at Washington Park on October 16th and 17th. Students had the opportunity to create their own Jack-O-Lantern for display. Each pumpkin had to be thoroughly cleaned of pumpkin guts and the lid cut at an angle so it would not fall into the pumpkin. Much fun was had by all who participated, and the carving resulted in very creative designs!
