Rick Jacobson was asked to do an in-store event at the Maple Leaf Gardens location of Loblaws grocery store. The task? Carve an enormous pumpkin for Halloween. The carving took place over several hours and quite a crowd gathered to watch Rick and his assistant work their magic with clay and putty knives.
Local Snap photographers and the CBC were there to film the occasion.
This was the second pumpkin that they had to buy, as the previous one was bigger, but started to rot!
We’ve got some fun pictures of the carving, too!
Next year promises to be even better.
