Halloween in Portsmouth, NH

pumpkin scarecrows, Portsmouth, NH

Happy Halloween!  New England seems to decorate for the Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving really well – maybe it has something to do with our close proximity to Salem and Plymouth.  I particularly like these pumpkin-headed scarecrows in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  The entire downtown is decorated with these 8 feet tall, black clad, wiry fellows.  They’re spooky but not very much, since some of them are dressed in old black concert tees.

  1. Those 8-foot pumpkin guys would be especially effective at night, I imagine, with shadows n all:o The old concert tees would just make them even creepier, despite the smiles. Kudos to whoever made them. Great pic!

    • Thanks John! I didn’t know this was an annual event and so well organized. I loved the effect and thought Portsmouth looked great! Congrats on such a wonderful community art project!
