Fort Point Pumpkin Pageant

To celebrate the Halloween festivities in Seaport area, Save the Harbor entered the Friends of Fort Point Channel 10th Annual Pumpkin Pageant. The Pumpkin Pageant brings together businesses and organizations in the surrounding area to create the Funniest, Scariest, Most Original, and Overall Best pumpkins by carving, painting, and decorating them. Winners will receive a trophy.

It was great to see pumpkins every shape and size and have a moment to appreciate just how talented and creative the businesses and organizations in the surrounding Fort Point Channel really are.

Who decides which pumpkins win? YOU DO! The public will vote on their favorite pumpkins between 12-3pm today at the Boston Children’s Museum. During the voting time, Friends of Fort Channel will offer face painting, soft pretzels, popcorn, warm cider, and even sugar pumpkins for children to take home this Halloween. 

For our entry, Save the Harbor Staff drew upon inspiration from our very own Larry the Lobster. Along with design help from our Vice President, decorative and creative vision from our Events Coordinator, Sue Woods, and with support from our interns, we were able to come up with a theme and design that really captured the spirit of our organization.
