Our Second Annual aMAZing Pumpkin Carve is returning to Howell Farm's Corn Maze!

Imagine a 150-pound pumpkin carved to look like Edgar Allen Poe. Or turned into a skeleton clawing its way out of a bowl. Now imagine fifty of these aMAZing pumpkins displayed at the Howell Farm Corn Maze. The Hopewell Valley Arts Council is expanding this popular walk-through exhibition to two weekends this year, with daily carving demonstrations by artists. Mark your calendars and plan to attend: The Carve exhibit will be open October 7-10 (Columbus Day long weekend) and October 14-16, 2016.
Check out our photo gallery of last year's aMAZing pumpkins to see what the Pumpkin Carve is all about!

There's still time to get involved in this year's Carve: We're looking for local businesses and individuals to sponsor a pumpkin.

Become a Pumpkin Sponsor: Put your name amid all the community fun and promotion throughout the prime Fall months and support the arts in Hopewell Valley! Find out more about the benefits of Sponsoring a Pumpkin and reserve your pumpkin!

From a local artist:
As an artist and a local resident, I'd like to thank the Council for this initiative and opportunity. Public art on a street level is a meaningful way to inspire the community and create wonder and excitement in the hearts of people, especially children. James J. Kelewae
