Busker: En Garde, You Orange Ruffian!!

By Mrstrongest @mrstrongarm

Time to bring back everyone’s favorite street musician for a Halloween post. There are many ways to carve a pumpkin, but naturally, Busker has his own approach.

It’s all in glorious B&W, so you’ll have to use your imagination for the orange part.

The sign is a nod to the Keene Pumpkin Festival. I live in Harrisville, New Hampshire, which is 20 minutes east of Keene. I’ve been to the famous pumpkin festival several times.

Just two weeks ago, on October 19, 2013, Keene reclaimed the world record for lighted jack o’lanterns assembled in one place with a count of 30,581.

Here’s a shot of the main tower from a previous festival that I found on a UK travel site.

Have you ever carved a pumpkin?

Or do you prefer to carve out pieces of pumpkin pie and add whipped cream??
