Photos: Pumpkin Carving at Poor House in Fort Lauderdale
Tuesday night, I stopped by the 3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving at the Poor House and I was amazed by the awesome turn out. A ton of tricksters came out ready to carve the night away. Walking throughout the bar, I saw Halloween enthusiasts setting up pumpkin carving stations wherever they found space. People were sprawled out onto the sidewalk skillfully carving away amongst friends, good music and drinks.
There were pieces of pumpkin bits, all sorts of carving tools, pumpkin seeds and pumpkin innards smathered all over the Poor House. The carvers playfully shared carving tools and exchanged creative ideas to help with each other's pumpkin creations. Plenty of people were captivated as they hung out and observed the pumpkin carving process in action.
The creative designs seen amongst the pumpkin patch brillantly glow into the night.

And as seen below, pixie sticks are more than a sweet treat; they evidently work as cute cat whiskers too.
