The Great Pumpkin! Is this is just some mythical being that Linus waited for in the “Charlie Brown” comic strip, or does it really exist?
While I’m not one for really waiting around like Linus did, I did find my great pumpkin at the pumpkin patch sponsored by Chimeric Arts. This little farm is located right next to their mask store in Port Caledon. I donned my costume and headed right over to the patch while managing to avoid a zombie or two that seem to want my brains.
Once I arrived, I strolled in and found my perfect pumpkin. You just click on a pumpkin, which goes right into your inventory. Once this is done, you then rez the pumpkin, which then shows the option to focus on the little white ‘screen’ that pops up above it. From there, you get a pretty fun little set of options for carving your jack-‘o’-lantern design. Once complete, you hit carve, and voila, you get your very own ‘personalized’ carved pumpkin.
I found this to be a pretty cool activity, and the great thing about it, besides the fun time of carving your own jack-‘o’- lantern?
It’s absolutely free! While there, you can also check out the store’s masks, which come in a great assortment of looks great for Halloween and any time that you need a mask. There are even some gifts available for free inside the shop.
