It’s Pumpkin Season!

Every fall, the air takes on a certain chill, color schemes veer toward orange, everything tastes like pumpkin spice, and you know Halloween is right around the corner. And here at Adcetera, we sharpen our knives.

The annual Adcetera Pumpkin Carving Contest provides an opportunity to delight and impress our friends, family, colleagues, and clients with displays of craft and creativity. The contest is open to public voting, both in-person and online. It often makes the local news, and sometimes draws national attention.

Among contestants, there are two competing schools of thought: one approach is to dress up the gourd with props, paint, and googly eyes. It’s hard to argue with success; these droll little ornaments are definite crowd-pleasers, and they rake in the votes. The opposing view is that it’s a pumpkin carving contest for crying out loud, not a pumpkin decorating contest, and if you can’t light a candle inside your jack-o-lantern, then you’re missing the point.

Either way, everyone has a good time and the winner secures bragging rights for another year. Be sure to catch this year’s contest online at batcetera.com. Voting begins at noon on Friday, October 28, and ends at midnight on Halloween.
