Bring a pumpkin and carving tools. The IUPCA suggests a blade to open the gourd and carve the features and a tool to remove the contents.
We use the Helsinki protocol for underwater pumpkin carving:
All gourds are submerged INTACT.
The minimum tread depth is 10 feet.
The addition of natural elements (grass, wood, rock) is allowed, but no live capture (animals) is allowed.
Fabulous prizes for all categories!!
