They will also attempt to break the record for the most pumpkins carved at one time. It’s a record the city currently holds. “I believe that number’s a little over a thousand people, so our goal this time is to get up to about 2,000 people consecutively carving a pumpkin at the same time,” said Mayor Greggory Hall. It’s happening Saturday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
