Each fall, beginning Columbus Day weekend, Damariscotta, Maine, hosts its annual crowd pleasing Pumpkin Fest. These not your ordinary pumpkins line the main street and are a real draw for visitors.
Some are big, really big, like this one weighing over 1400 pounds. It must have taken a forklift to raise it!
Big and little pumpkins
are combined into playful and fun creations.
This gal is all puckered up for a smooch,
and her friend is having a really bad hair day.
I almost missed this cherry red pumpkin in front of an old timey soda fountain
and this one on the porch of the cute bistro where we had lunch.
It is amazing the work that goes into these creations be they carved
or painted with intricate designs.
A most unique owl image was made by collaging art papers onto the surface.
This guy, well, he just may be looking for a way to avoid the chopping block!
Taking all this in was a most fun way to spend an afternoon. For sure, if you come to Maine during leaf peeping time, you want to put the Pumpkin Fest on your list of entertaining things to see.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
