Can’t keep a good pumpkin down: Morris Arts’ Pumpkin Illumination draws big crowds

Heavy rains may have delayed but didn’t diminish the enthusiastic crowds at Morris Arts’ 10th annual Pumpkin Illumination event rescheduled for Monday, October 28th.

L-R: Artist Dan Fenelon (in jacket) with Bear helper; view of Vail Mansion with lit pumpkins lining reflecting pool; Little girl in costume at art table.
Smiles, costumes and those inimitable masks (created by artist Dan Fenelon) complimented the enormous creativity showcased in the inventive carved pumpkins that lined the Vail Mansion reflecting pool.

L-R: Lit pumpkins reflecting in the pool; Closeup of skull and ‘cannibal’ pumpkins; kids picking out masks to wear. The start of the Luminary Parade led by Mayor Tim Dougherty and his wife Mary along with the jazz band, the Lintet.

As in prior years, the event featured live jazz, art-making for kids and the luminary parade, led by Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty (with his wife Mary) and the giant Fenelon-created skeleton.
