There are some super creative people out there in Western New York. Everyone is getting ready now that this is the week for Halloween. COVID-19 may have changed some of your family's trick-or-treating traditions this year, but one thing that isn't going away is the creative pumpkin carvers in Buffalo!

I do not think that I have the patience and these pumpkins take time and a very detail-oriented person to make. They're super impressive. Of course, you need to get your small carving knives and kits, but the most important part are these stencils, that are here for you to print out and put on your pumpkin to trace!

  • Purple pumpkin - Raises awareness for those who could have epilepsy and suffer from seizures.
