Welcome to the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, N.H. It was a beautiful day with Summer like weather. The Foliage is still spectacular. It has been years since I visited the Festival. I was not disappointed. The thousands of Pumpkins were amazing. So many different carving inspirations... These pumpkins were even more dramatic when lit. This year Keene was trying to top Highwood, Illinois for the most lit Jack-O'-Lanterns. Last year this town topped the World Record and Keene was ready for the competition. To make this "Pumpkin War" more interesting, the Property Brothers for the popular network HGTV were present to witness and film the event at each respective town; with Drew in Keene and Jonathan in Highwood, Illinois. The event will be premiere on HGTV Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 at 9:00p.m. Read all about it HERE.
Keene had a total of 29,381 pumpkins and unfortunately could not set the 32,000 record. Keene is a proud town for its eight-time holder of The Guinness Book of World Records category for the most carved and lit pumpkins.
