So I went to the Keene Pumpkinfest! No, I wasn't hurt in the "riots" and from what I saw things were pretty under control by the time I got there. There were lots and lots of ambulances and police lining the streets in case anything else did happen; the most action I got to see was the yelling/screaming match between two women and our bus driver to the event.
Anyways, we carved our own pumpkins and placed them with the other 20,000+ carved pumpkins for the Guinness World Record counting. The Keene Pumpkinfest has broken the record for most jack-o-lanterns lit in one place 9 times. Unfortunately they didn't break it this year. But, we had fun walking around the town and seeing all the designs! We even helped light a few.
