Come be a part of Westchester's newest live pumpkin carving competition, Battle of the Jack O'Lanterns! We're looking for a small and select group of only 100 talented carvers and sculptors to slice, dice, and create gourd-geous works of art to be put on display this October at the Yorktown Grange Fairgrounds! Don't let your neighbors be the only ones to see your carving skills this Halloween - take a stab at this competition and show your work off to thousands of visitors at our event!
We're not messing around with small pumpkins, either. We'll be supplying each carver (or carving team) with a monstrous 100+ pound pumpkin to hack away at!
PRIZES: Our panel of Halloween experts will be on-hand to judge the best carves in five categories. Each team will pre-select a charity of their choice. Each winning team will receive $1,000 for their charity! Winning teams may also be awarded PAID carving positions at this and other events in 2019!
WHEN and WHERE: Battle of the Jack O'Lanterns will take place October 19th and 20th 2018 at the Yorktown Grange Fairgrounds in Westchester County, New York. Carvers can register to carve 10/19 OR 10/20 OR BOTH nights!
CARVER REGISTRATION: Registration is REQUIRED for all carving teams. You can register yourself to carve or register a team carve of up to 4 people. Carvers must arrive between 4pm and 5pm on their carve date. Registration cost per team is $50.00 to reserve your spot. Your $50.00 will be COMPLETELY REFUNDED after the event as long as you show up and complete your carve. There are NO REFUNDS if you don't show up to carve! There are a limited number of pumpkins available per night so REGISTER now to secure your pumpkin before someone else does! Registrations are being taken on a first-come first-serve basis!
