    I'd have to also say pumpkin carving. Along with getting into costume. We'll be doing that again this year in Wilton Manors, with Wilton Drive closed to traffic for partiers. I'll probably be wearing one of my kilts.

    For some serious pumpkin carving you traditionally went to Keene, New Hampshire for many years. They'd have around 30,000 carved pumpkins the locals display all around the town square. Frames were built about 30 feet high to hold many of them, and benches placed everywhere.

    None can be painted, all must be carved. Because at midnight they're all smashed in the street, any candles or other lights inside first removed. And during the night bucket loaders clean up the mess, and take it away for use as animal feed. It's an amazing ritual.

    But last year drunken students from the local college in Keene rioted, with 100 arrests, and the festival was moved to Laconia, New Hampshire. It's not clear when or if it will ever return to its original home in Keene.

    It's a shame that the Pumpkin Festival had to be moved out of Keene. I've never seen it, but it was evidently an enjoyable traditional community Halloween tradition for many years. I wouldn't be surprised if the students at Keene State have been getting some inspiration from the drunken student parties & riots at UMASS, Amherst. They seem to enjoy seeing how much trouble they can cause for the campus & town police, and the more campus & neighborhood vandalism, the better. They think nothing of breaking house & car windows, destroying mailboxes, overturning cars, and taunting the police. The sad thing is, most of the students at Keene State are Education majors, and they'll be the future teachers in our schools in the years to come. Is it any wonder that our public schools are in such deplorable shape ?
