Pumpkin Carving Installation with Over 80 Pumpkins

Rock On Ice was contracted to carve pumpkins and create a large scale pumpkin display for a zoo’s fall weekend festival. This was some serious pumpkin carving!

We started with over 80 pumpkins and had 2 days to carve.

Here we are with the team:
Titus Arensberg, Dean Murray, and Greg Butauski.

Our three carvers pulled a tag team match on the two larger pumpkins. They weighed around 500 lbs each. Each carver would work on the piece for an hour or two then break off to work on the smaller pumpkins to put around the entire display. This was truly a collaborative effort between 3 master pumpkin artists.

 

Here are some detail images of the Haunted House and Skeleton.

And here is the final product. In all we ended up carving 2,400 lbs.  (just over a ton) of pumpkins for this Halloween themed display!

Rock On Ice carves pumpkins for all kinds of events. We carve small and large pumpkins for doorsteps, buffet tables, centerpieces, Fall weddings, special events, Trick or Treat events, and Fall festivals. We carve large scale pumpkin displays, which have been featured at Zoo’s and area Fall festivals. We also organize large scale pumpkin carving events and competitions.
