pumpkin fest

Attended the Highwood Pumpkin Fest in Highwood, IL last weekend with the Levens.  And let me just say there were a LOT of pumpkins!  Somewhere between 28,000 and 30,000, I hear.  Apparently they were trying to win HGTV's Pumpkin Wars and break several records.  They were competing against New Hampshire and I believe Highwood won!  The show is set to air on Halloween.  The amount of pumpkins was overwhelming.  AND they lit them one at at time - each had one or two tea lites inside.  Insane!
