Pennsylvania Artist Carves 910-Pound Jack O’ Lantern

The Engine 13 Firehouse in Erie, Pennsylvania has been flooded with visitors since firefighters put a 910-pound jack o’ lantern on display.

The huge pumpkin was grown by firefighter John Stewart in his home garden, a post on Twitter reads. Not knowing what to do with the monstrosity, he hauled it to the firehouse to put it on display.

That’s when artist Twila Zellafrow spotted it and saw it as an opportunity to turn it into something special, she says. With Stewart’s permission, she spent six hours on Sunday, working in rainy weather, carving it into a Halloween masterpiece, Zellafrow says.

There’s no word on what she did with the pumpkin’s filling.
