Pumpkins of Pickaway

In the town where I am from, Circleville OH, we have a huge anual festival every year called "The Circleville Pumpkin Show." The entire town shuts down for a week, while the citizens ride rides, watch parades, and eat every kind of pumkin food you can imagine. The past two years The Junior Women, a femal group that does charity work, sponcered "Pumpkins of Pickaway." About 20 local artists, icluding myself paint ceramic pumpkins to sell at Pumpkin Show. The proceeds of the sale are used to sponcer young aspiring artists from Circleville. This year is The Circleville Pumpkin Show's 100th anniversary, so 100 ceramic pumpkins will be on display. Two of them are Ohio State Buckeye Pumpkins that I created. Here are some pictures of them.
