The second-annual Pumpkin Carving Festival allows families to enjoy a quintessential fall tradition while aiding local and national charities. Held at the spacious Neal S. Blaisdell Center, the event that attracted more than 1,100 attendees last year will again seat families of eager squash whittlers near each other for the festive occasion. During a two-hour carving session, groups of up to eight people bring their jack-o’-lanterns to life utilizing scoopers, pairing knives, stencils, and suggestions culled from the cryogenically frozen brain of Dr. Frankenstein. This year’s Pumpkin Carving Festival’s proceeds will benefit the ongoing community-building efforts of Hawaii Children’s Discovery Center and the Keiki O Ka Aina Family Learning Centers, who use Hawaiian culture to strengthen familial bonds and literacy.
