Return of the Pumpkin People & Great Foliage!

Jump to last reply

Foliage in the White Mountains is currently at peak.

If you are in the area, be sure to stop in Jackson for the 26th annual "Return of the Pumpkin People" - over 100 businesses participating this year in N. Conway, Bartlett & Jackson - it started as a Jackson event so most are in that area - really creative stuff this year! Displays out until Oct 20th.

My husband & I (and a few other board members) did the display at the Jackson Historical Society & Museum of White Mountain Art. It is called Shapleigh From the Inside Out to go along with our FREE current exhibit of Shapleigh paintings - he used to sit inside barns and paint the view of the mountains and always included many of the same elements like yellow hats, pumpkins, cats and chickens. Our pumpkin display won 1st place this year! Not sure if you can see it, but here is a link to a photo on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=615846635134579&set=a.241824982536748.71742.104703536248894&type=1&theater

The art exhibit doesn't officially open until the 18th, but our 90 year old curator Warren is giving sneak previews - open if you see his white Lexus in the parking lot, great first art exhibit for kids since many of the paintings have animals.... also have a giant topographical map of the area, fun for hikers & kids of all ages.
