Macaroon’s not feeling well today. I’m going to take the reigns on today’s late posting.
We live in walking distance of the New York Botanical Garden
. I’ve really grown to enjoy and appreciate it. In fact, we ALMOST got married there.
While looking into Halloween-themed events we would like to attend this year, we found out that NYBG is hosting a “Giant Pumpkin Carving Weekend” on October 20th and 21st. During the event, Ray Villafane, is going to carving live. It’s easy to say that I’m a fan!
You may know Ray Villafane is from Halloween Wars or the Food Network Challenge: Outrageous Pumpkin Challenge. You may be familiar with how creative, technical and realistic his carving artistry is. If not, check out this WSJ.com article
from last year.
If the article’s not enough, there’s a pretty cool YouTube video of Ray’s work that I recommend you watch.
We’ll be sharing some photos of our outing in the future.
