Love stories about old houses and family secrets.

Something is happening in my tiny Virginia town. Something strange, and mystifying, and… orange.

It’s the attack of the pumpkin people!

Okay, really it’s just Woodstock’s annual Pumpking People contest, where residents and businesses compete to make the most creative pumpkin folk in town. To see the winner of the contest, check out this Instagram post by @discoverwoodstockva: https://www.instagram.com/p/CVicKEsjDPx/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

In the meantime, here are a few shots that my sister and I took of some of our favorites:

  • A senior citizen and his kindhearted attendant.
  • Prince! (Sorry I didn’t get a better angle on this incredibly cool pumpkin celebrity.)
  • The pumpkin princess at Shenandoah County Fairground.
  • Cruella and her crew.
  • Monsters Inc.
  • A Nightmare Before Christmas.

This contest is everything I love about my new hometown of Woodstock, Virginia. Come visit sometime!
