Record-setting Pumpkin to be Carved at Foxwoods Resort Casino Halloween Festival

Foxwoods to host renowned pumpkin carver, Scott Cully, Sunday, October 27

Mashantucket, Conn. (October 22, 2013)
–Foxwoods Resort Casino , the largest resort casino in North America, is proud to host world-renowned pumpkin carver and five-time Guinness Book of World Record holder, Scott Cully, as he transforms a giant pumpkin into a larger than life jack-o'-lantern. Guests are invited to carve out some time to watch a masterpiece in the making on October 27 from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. ET in Rainmaker Square to see the Connecticut-native work his Halloween magic.

Guests will get a front row seat to watch the record breaking sculpting process as Cully carves a rare 1,766 pound pumpkin—the largest Connecticut grown pumpkin in state history!

The pumpkin provided for Cully's carvings at Foxwoods is supplied by local grower Ron Wallace. The 1,766 pound fruit, grown locally, marks a new state record for largest pumpkin grown in Connecticut and the third largest on the entire east coast.  With a pumpkin this size, it promises to be a carving you have to see live to believe.
