2015 Annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest

Lommie Carving a Pumpkin

The second annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest at Loch Low‑Minn was a ton of fun!
Five brave souls entered the depths of the loch and carved their way into legend.

We want to thank the participants for braving the overcast weather and putting their work on display! We also extend our appreciation to the judges for taking the time to cast their votes and to the Loch Low‑Minn staff and friends for all their efforts in organizing the event. It would not have been possible without all your help!

We hope that next year will see more brave participants and exciting new carvings to continue this one-of-a-kind tradition.

Below is a collection of pictures from the event.
