If it didn’t feel like Halloween to you last year, that was probably because Crest Hardware didn’t hold their Pumpkin Carving Contest. Scary thing that was, but happily they brought the event back this year! Creative squash carvers could once again have an outlet for their talents. This year there was a whale of a pumpkin, or rather vice versa nestled in a blue sea glass ocean. Their garden center was illuminated with many other impressive and inventive sculpted gory gourds galore.
