Little Pumpkin-Lit Village

Rudolfingen 2015A few weeks back, a friend of mine (who knows I love Halloween/pumpkin/autumny stuff) sent me a text about going to a little Swiss village called Rudolfingen for a pumpkin festival. I was all in before I even really knew what the event was about. She had me at “pumpkin festival”… 🙂

KürbisbeleuchtungRudolfingen has a traditional festival called the Kürbisbeleuchtung (pumpkin lighting) where the entire village turns off all the lights and over 1,000 Jack o’Lanterns illuminate everything. They also have all sorts of food stands with pumpkin-inspired snacks like pumpkin soup, pumpkin chili con carne, pumpkin french fries with pumpkin ketchup, and pumpkin cakes. As PeeWee Herman would say: “Mmmm! Pumpkiny!”

Today's secret word is: RUDOLFINGEN!

One of the highlights was surely the pumpkin pinwheel with all the candlelit pumpkins spinning around. Click on the below video to see it in action.

It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen and I think the pictures speak for themselves. Check out the schaurig schön (spooktacular) image gallery of photos below!
