The Halloween tradition of the Great Pumpkin Carve continues on Oct. 22-24.
The outdoor festival features more than 60 local artists who will carve huge pumpkins, which will then be lit and displayed each night. Guests will enjoy live music, a haunted trail, food, hayrides and all around autumn fun.
The Chadds Ford tradition, now co-sponsored by the Chadds Ford Historical Society and the Concordville Chadds Ford Rotary, began in the 1970s when renowned artists Andrew and Jaime Wyeth were convinced to carve pumpkins to decorate the inside of the Chadds Ford Inn.
The Great Pumpkin Carve, which takes place about seven miles from Hamanassett, runs from 5 to 7 p.m. each night at the Barn Visitors Center and admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 7 to 17 and free for children under 6.
