I don’t know about you but when I try carving pumpkins mine never turn out. I always end up with one giant hole in the middle. So this year instead of carving my own pumpkin, I went to see professionally carved pumpkins at the Rise of the Jack O’ Lanterns at the LA Convention Center. With over 5,000 pumpkins on view, these are no ordinary jack o’ lanterns. Intricately carved, many are stacked together to create one giant work of art such as Spiderman or Darth Vader. These are my favorite from the festival.
