Underwater Pumpkin Carving ContestOctober 22, 2016, 12:00 pm-3:00 pm
It’s that time of year, when friends and family come together to carve pumpkins…with a twist. It’s all done underwater, with real pumpkins! What could be more traditional? Join the carving at the Dive Shop’s Indoor Pool (so the weather doesn’t matter). All proceeds benefit Creative Aging. All you have to do is show up ready to get wet and have fun. Teams of two or more carve Jack-O’-Lanterns underwater in scuba gear or with snorkels. Scuba users must have their dive certification. Contestants provide their own pre-scooped and cleaned, unmarked pumpkin (minimum diameter of 12”), and carving tools. All ages may participate. Children under 15 must have an adult partner. Everyone votes for their favorite pumpkins and winners receive gift certificates from the Dive Shop. Entry fee is $25 per team. Don’t feel like getting wet? Come watch instead! We’ll have a live video feed of all the underwater fun, plus live music and food for sale. All proceeds benefit Creative Aging.
