The Pumpkin House

What a crowd!  We parked and walked two blocks to the Pumpkin House this evening.  Not knowing that there was a line that extended forever the other way, we walked right into the yard and looked and looked at the pumpkins.
We were able to see the Headless Horseman ride his horse down the street.  Fun!
The Music Wall is spectacular, each pumpkin with an instrument carved into it lights up as that instrument is played in the symphony.
The Cat Choir was in its best voice, and the animal pumpkins were aboard Noah's Ark.  A special section was reserved for the birds.  Just amazing!
It was so crowded, it was hard to see anything very well.  I would estimate there were at least 2000 people either looking or waiting in line.  30,000 people are estimated to view the Pumpkin House this weekend. 
That is a huge crowd for this area!

Oh wow! That was a ton of work. How in the world do they keep the things from rotting while they work on the other ones?
