Actually carving the pumpkins was something that was kept to a family activity to ensure the safety of everyone during the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum’s pumpkin carving event on October 17.  The event was open to everyone and free to the public. Kids were busy scooping out gooey gobs of pumpkin guts while the parents carved the design in the pumpkins. Photo by Teri Nehrenz.
