Just out of the WSB inbox – one of the season’s most unusual pumpkin-carving competitions:
The annual Boeing Seahorse and Marker Buoys Dive Club Underwater Pumpkin Carving will take place Saturday, October 27th at the Alki Picnic Shelter on 63rd and Alki Avenue. Divers will enter the water at around 10:00 AM and will have one hour to carve their pumpkin in a minimum of 10′ of water. We need the public to help us judge the carved pumpkins. Judging will begin shortly after 11:00 AM. Categories are Artistic, Biggest, Scariest, Better off as Pumpkin Pie, and Best use of Sea Life. We hope to see you there!
We’ve added that to the WSB West Seattle Halloween 2012 page; if you’re having a public Halloween-themed event, and it’s not on that page, please send us the info – thanks!
