What would Halloween be like without decorated pumpkins? That is a question I ask myself each Halloween.
Every Halloween I make sure to view and photograph the Pumpkin Patch. It’s a Halloween tradition. Yet, every year I go I am always expecting that it will not be there. And I am sure that will be the case one year. But, for now, the pumpkins are on display every year at Salem Common during the Halloween season.
Over 100 local Salem students, including some from Carlton School, Bates School, and YMCA, participate in the contest. They are grouped by age group
Pictured below are some of my favorites.
The pumpkins are usually on display until Halloween.
Not only were pumpkins were dressed up for Halloween. People and their pets were also dressed up as their favorite characters.
It turns out she really did miss the scarecrow most! I’m glad they’re back together again.
I wasn’t sure who these people were dressed up as. But, I thought they had cool costumes. It turns out they are dressed up as characters from the television show, Dr. Who.
Skeletor and He-Man mixed it up on the streets of Salem!
“I’m David Pumpkins, man!”
There were a lot of cute couples dressed to kill!
Sometimes the best costumes are the ones that include a group of people or family.
I loved the face painting and hats on these costumed revelers.
Even though this may look like a statue or decoration it is an actual person or hay person.
These people look like they put a lot of time working on their costumes.
