Best of October Pumpkin Carving

October was crazy busy for Rock On Ice with pumpkin carving and pumpkin carving demonstrations.

Rock On Ice traveled all across Ohio and even outside Ohio to bring pumpkins to life! We carved pumpkins as small as 20 lbs. to over
1,000 lbs. In all, we carved over 400 pumpkins in October.
We carved pumpkins for Fall Festivals, Zoo’s, Corporate Events,
and Trick-or-Treat events.

Here are some of our favorite pumpkin pics from this Fall…enjoy!

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.

Pumpkin Carving Demonstration for Zoo

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.

Pumpkin Carving: Demonstrations and Displays For Your Fall Festival or Event

If you are attending one of the many Fall festivals or special events this year, you will enjoy drinking apple cider, getting lost in the
never-ending corn maze, and picking your favorite pumpkin from the vine-laced pumpkin patch! All these fun activities are what you will find at your typical festival or event. But, if you are a small business owner or event planner you are probably looking to add a new activity—something unique, to draw more people to your event.
A pumpkin carving demonstration can be one of the more unique attractions that customers will never forget!

Rock On Ice specializes in customized pumpkin carving demonstrations and also pre-carved pumpkin displays.
Our demonstrations and displays are the perfect addition to
your fall festival or event, and are great for both kids and adults.

The large display pumpkin demonstrations are the highlight for kids both young and old. They can watch our carvers transform ordinary pumpkins into all kinds of unique faces and get their photo taken with the completed display—to remember forever!

Pumpkin Display

We can carve any size pumpkin, from 30 pounds up to 300 pounds! Our skilled carvers can wow the crowd in just a couple hours, to over a couple days. We can accommodate any size budget to make the event fun and entertaining. If you have an event that runs throughout the month, have us carve on multiple weekends—this can draw more people to your event, when it is advertised in advance.


Besides fall festivals, we can carve pumpkins for corporate events, private parties, or a single pumpkin for your front door display. We provide many different options such as on-site demos and pre-carved pumpkins—perfect for your buffet display or a table centerpiece.

For a corporate event, we can add your company logo.
