Pumpkin People Have Returned to Jackson, New Hampshire

King Pumpkin, Queen Pumpkin, Stepmother Pumpkin PeopleFor the 25th year, Jackson is celebrating the “Return of the Pumpkin People”, with over 70 displays for everyone to enjoy. You’ll find Pumpkin Man in the Mountains, Angry Birds, Circus clowns, the Grinch, ET, artists, leaf peepers in a pickup, Sesame Street favorites, plus many other movie, TV, and fairy tale characters. It often takes several weeks to create each display, which must use real pumpkins for the heads of characters. Visit the Pumpkin People in Jackson, Hart’s Location, Bartlett, Glen, Intervale, and North Conway, NH, on a self-guided tour ~ each official host property is marked on the map available at the inn or from the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce. You can vote for you favorites for the “People’s Choice” award.

Since it is the 25th anniversary celebration, the Inn at Ellis River is hosting an Anniversary Ball where Pumpkinella charms her Prince Pumpkin. Like many of our guests who love to return to the inn again and again, some pumpkin people from past years have come back too, and are celebrating at this gala event. It wouldn’t be October without Fiona, our favorite Maid! She’s on duty passing out champagne at the ball. Remember one year when Fiona had to bring extra pillows to the Princess who could feel a little pumpkin under all those mattresses? She and her Prince are now King and Queen, reigning over the ball. Then there was the year of Fionarella, when she hoped her prince would come. She tried on the glass slipper while her jealous stepsisters and her stepmother watched in dismay. The stepmother and stepsisters have returned to dance again, still hoping that Prince Pumpkin’s heart can be won. The Prince seems to have eyes only for his Pumpkinella, but thankfully there is a gallant noble willing to dance with the stepsister. The chandelier twinkles and the dance goes on until October 21, so be sure to come to this gala ball!
