It truly is amazing. It's one of my favorite events of the season. This year will be its 9th year. This event takes pumpkin carving to the next level. It's something you're not going to want to miss.

The Amazing Pumpkin Carve will kick off Wednesday, October 11th and run through Sunday, October 15th.

It will once again be held at Woolsey Park in Titusville, NJ (221 Washington Crossing Pennington Road).

The popular event promises to be even bigger and better than last year.

It's going to be an outdoor festival (so wear comfy shoes) with live music, storytellers around fire pits, games, face painting and of course, the amazing, outrageous, creative pumpkins.

I bet you've never seen anything like this. The pumpkins are massive. They're over 150 pounds each.

Local artists show off their carving skills and the result is...well, amazing. I know I'm using that word a lot, but they really are amazing. You'll see. Thousands of people enjoy this display every year.

I think I took about 100 pictures last time I was there. I was in awe.
