When art lovers and travel enthusiasts celebrate Halloween by carving pumpkins, they do it right!

Park West Gallery held its second annual pumpkin carving contest at its headquarters in Southfield, Michigan to get into the Halloween spirit. Each department was given a pumpkin to transform into imaginative masterpieces. As you can see, we used everything from props and paint to bottles of soda to try and outdo each other.

Check out the fun and festive jack-o-lanterns created by our staff:

 

1. A pumpkin transformed into a fairy’s home
