Each year, Montréal Botanical Garden organized the Great Pumpkin Ball. Visitors can admire the best decorated pumpkins made by the participants aged 6 years and up. We saw the exhibition last Friday with my son’s day care. If you are in town, the Great Pumpkin Ball is open until October 31st.
Topics were diverse. Recurring ideas include comic characters, superheros, sports and TV personalities.
Garfield pumpkin from the 6 to 12 years old category
Spider smurf pumpkin from the 6 to 12 years old category
Amongst the classic Halloween themes, I particularly enjoy the Dracula pumpkin, the magician and the beautiful mask lady pumpkin.

I will return to the Great Pumpkin Ball next year to admire the craft projects of our youth.
