An annual Chadds Ford tradition.
UPDATE: The Great Pumpkin Carve of Chadds Ford 2020
After much feedback from the community, staff and Board, it has been decided to change the decision of a “Drive Thru” to a “Virtual Pumpkin Carve”. This will now allow for anyone to participate in this wonderful event. Those that are local or distant, that may have been nervous to carve in front of a crowd, or would like to work in the comfort of their home, can all participate in groups of any size.
The 2020 “Virtual Pumpkin Carve” event is FREE of charge. All we ask is that carvers send their photos and list of carvers directly to email@example.com. You can be as creative as you want with props and backdrops, more guidelines will follow on our website. With so much canceled this year, why not make this a fun filled family event. We are hoping that 2021 will allow us to be back to our regular layout, but for now, join us in keeping the Chadds Ford Historical Society alive.
Stay tuned for more details on guidelines and dates…
* Note: Carvers need to provide their own pumpkins, any shape, size or color will be allowed. H. G. Haskell, the owner of SIW Vegetables in Chadds Ford and supplier of our pumpkins, has many shapes and sizes for purchase. He also has some enormous ones that can be special ordered by texting him directly on his cell 610-715-7688. A wonderful way to support a local business and get a great pumpkin, too!
