Artist Brings World Class Carvings and Vignettes to Arizona Pumpkin Garden

Pumpkin Patch

The town of Carefree, Arizona has a pumpkin patch unlike any other. The Carefree Enchanted Pumpkin Garden features four acres of pumpkin tableaus and carvings. The carvings come courtesy of Ray Villafane, who Martha Stewart called the “Michelangelo of pumpkin carving.” And given how detailed (and clever!) Villafane’s carvings are, the Enchanted Pumpkin Garden may very well be the gourd version of the Sistine Chapel. Not only will autumnal squash enthusiasts be able to view these whimsical creations until Oct. 31st they’ll be able to take pictures with the 400-pound carved “King of Carefree” pumpkin.
