What a carve up! West Virginian Halloween house with 3,000 pumpkins gives locals a scare – Market Subset News

Residents of Kenova, West Virginia were treated to a spooky annual tradition; a house with 3,000 carved pumpkin lanterns outside, as seen on Saturday.

“Our daughter loves pumpkins,” said one local. “There is a lot here so we bring her so she can see ’em all and look at all the different carved pumpkins and run around and have a good time.”

Footage shows Halloween fans enjoying the display, with carvings of cartoon characters and US presidents amongst the scary faces. In nighttime shots, the lanterns are lit up, with crowds of locals and visitors gathered around.

“Oprah Winfrey had it on her show and of course it went nationwide and everybody heard about it but everybody local already knew about it,” explained another fan.

Local reports suggest around 30,000 people make the trip to see the house every year. The tradition, which began in 1978 with just a handful of pumpkins, is now a key part of the Ceredo and Kenova Autumnfest.
