Volunteers carve 500 pumpkins

It takes 500 pumpkins to light the trails for Ghoulees in the Coulees, and it takes volunteers to carve those pumpkins.

Volunteers came together Sunday for one hour to carve their way through mountains of pumpkins using several different methods and tools.

Each of the pumpkins carved Sunday will be on display on the haunted trails at the Ghoulees in the Coulees event.

Olivia Nottestad, nature programs coordinator for Norskedalen, said these events are about bringing the community together.

“The reason why we’re doing Ghoulees in the Coulees and this pumpkin carving is just kind of for community outreach and just making sure that families in the area have somewhere safe and fun that they all can come out and enjoy,” Nottestad said.

Ghoulees in the Coulees takes place next weekend. Events start on Thursday and end on Saturday.
