Halloween was rather unusual for the second year in a row now, and while it was evident that we felt quite a bit safer this year, COVID-19 still had a huge impact on how our fall festivities played out.

Last year’s Pumpkin Giveaway & Carving Contest was such a huge success, and we were determined to make it even BIGGER and BETTER this year!

We HAND DELIVERED nearly 300 pumpkins to people who RSVP’ed. Thats almost twice as many as last year!

In addition to the pumpkins, we also dropped off bags filled with candy & chocolate for the kids, a recipe card, and a pumpkin carving kit!

The mission was clear, and the competition was fierce.  Up for grabs was a set of Apple AirPods, and gift certificates to local restaurants.  We were SO impressed with the entries!

Congratulations to our FIRST PLACE WINNER, with 160 votes, Iris Warywoda, with one of the most detailed and interesting pumpkins we have ever seen in any of our contests!

Second place went to The Rosenbergs – Eric, Erin, Linkin, and Laila, with 79 votes!

Third place was Juliette Coe, with 50 votes!

Such incredible work!

Honourable mention to the “staged” pumpkin, carved by Caroline Arnold from our Staging Team!

We made a $5 donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank for every pumpkin carving entry we received, because we always like to support a great cause!

This year’s contest was one to remember… we hope you enjoyed seeing all of the creations. Here they are, forever enshrined in the Charlton Advantage Pumpkin Hall of Fame!
