Candle company invites jack-o’-lantern entries
PUMPKIN CARVING: Kringle Candle Co. in Bernardston is giving away $1,000 in gift cards for the winners of its first-ever pumpkin-carving contest Sunday. “I grew up carving jack-o’-lanterns and I still do it every year with my younger sisters as a family tradition,” said Kringle owner Michael Kittredge III.
There will be two categories, one for those 12 and younger, the other for those 13 and up. The first prize for each category will be a $250 gift card to Kringle Candle or the Farm Table Restaurant. Two runners-up in each category will receive gift cards of $150 and $100. To enter, bring your pre-carved jack-o’-lantern to Kringle’s 220 South St. headquarters between 5 and 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Late entries will not be accepted. Entries must be carved from a single pumpkin, and contain no foreign objects, like wire, toothpicks, glue, paint or other decorations. Each must have a hole at least four inches in diameter, so Kringle staff can insert a candle.
At 5:45 p.m., staff will begin lighting the candles, and judging will start. Winners will be announced at 6 p.m.
