What does pumpkin carving, Guinness World Record-breaking and raising funds for charity have in common? They were all done at the Life is good: Pumpkin Festival this year.
On October 21, Life is good: Pumpkin Festivals took place across the country. Over 100,000 people carved pumpkins at the Boston Commons festival site and 30,128 pumpkins lit up the grounds to set a new Guinness World Record!
The Life is good: Pumpkin Festival, across eighteen sites, also raised $554,211 to support kids in need.
You now know a pumpkin festival can set a world record and raise over a half million dollars for a worthy charity. What events can you think of and start that can also make a difference?
