This is from 2011 but since I did not see it until Halloween passed, I decided to save it for this Halloween.

Ray Villafane created a massive carving of what seems like the  world's largest pumpkin. It weighs 1818.5 pounds and was grown by Jim Bryson and his daughter Kelsey. Villafane used another smaller pumpkin, that weighed 1693 pounds for additional pieces including the zombies.
Ray Villafane is an amazing sculptor that has worked for Warner Brothers, DC Comics, Marvel and McFarlane. He has done a number of impressive sand sculptures and has been featured on the Food Networks show Outrageous Pumpkins, ultimately taking home the grand prize.
