Pumpkin Fest!

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Blue Cardinal is located in Highwood, Illinois. 
This past weekend, Highwood was going for the
Guinness Book of World Records for the most lit, carved pumpkins--32,000!!
HGTV was there too, to film the happenings for a new show
called "Pumpkin Wars". We'll find out on Halloween if they broke the record but for now here are some pics from the weekend!

How do you like my mustache?

A little gross, but also cool!

I'll post more pictures soon...
there are some very creative carvers out there!
Do you get clever with your pumpkins? Do tell!

Picture that with a Kodak!

Added a tower of cameras to Blue Cardinal today!
They are all on an old film display piece from a store. Also used some old store display pieces to hold photos. I just love any kind of old camera...don't you? 

Halloween has arrived at Blue Cardinal!
