Rise of the Jack O' Lanterns

We went to this really cool event tonight, even though it was outdoors and raining.  It is called "Rise of the Jack O' Lanterns."  It is a display of five thousand one hundred Jack O' Lanterns at Old Westbury Gardens.  These two photographs don't begin to do justice to all the creativity displayed by the artists who design and carve these wonderful pumpkins.  I could have shot fifty close-ups of individual pumpkins and you would be astounded.  But instead I did two photographs of the landscapes that were created.

Amazing that they have so many participating carving pumpkins.

It is a commercial endeavor. So I guess that they pay the artists who carve these. Oh, and I guess I didn't mention that most of the pumpkins are plastic, not real pumpkins. They need to be plastic so that they will last for the 3 or 4 weeks they are on display.
