Light it Up returns to Chewelah

September 23, 2015

CHEWELAH—The Chewelah Arts’ Guild needs the public’s help to “Light Up The Park” on Oct. 24 with carved Jack O’ Lanterns.
“Bring as many as you would like,” encouraged spokeswoman, Sarah English.
To count toward Chewelah Arts Guild’s Guinness World Record attempt of 2,015 pumpkins, the Jack O’ Lanterns need to have carved mouths, noses, eyes and yes, even eyebrows.
If that criteria isn’t met, the pumpkins won’t be counted toward the record.
“Be as creative as you wish carving a design,” English said. “Put a logo, character, name, etc. on the backside of the pumpkin if you wish.”
