Artist Brings World Class Carvings and Vignettes to Arizona Pumpkin Garden


Pumpkin  tch

The village of Carefree, Arizona has a pumpkin tch unlike any other. The Carefree Pleased Pumpkin Garden features four acres of pumpkin tableaus and carvings. The carvings upon courtesy of Ray Villafane, who Martha Stewart called the “Michelangelo of pumpkin cut up.” And given how detailed (and clever!) Villafane’s carvings are, the Enchanted Pumpkin Garden may damned well be the gourd version of the Sistine Chapel. Not only will autumnal squash heads be able to view these whimsical creations until Oct. 31st they’ll be proficient to take pictures with the 400-pound carved “King of Easy” pumpkin.
