    Meet the Pumpkin Carvemaster


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sjunat55 told me, 'Todd Pugsley, an architect who does carving as a hobby- and some pretty cool carvings- he must've done 6 or 7 of them in the hour I was there!'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    On Sunday October 24th, the north end of Central Park, by the beautiful Harlem Meer, was the scene of the 20th Annual Halloween Celebration.

    The event included a pumpkin carving demonstration by Todd Pugsley.

    Pugsley, a 40 year old architect originally from Washington, DC living in New York, started carving about 14 years ago.

    He captivated the audience, specially the young ones, with a step-by-step demonstration of the process, from start to finish.

    He carved about 6 or 7 pumpkins throughout the event, including one of a face that could be in Mt Rushmore, a wild cat and a bat.
