A Pumpkin Planting Promotion


We would like to thank all the participants in carlsbadcrawl’s most recent public art project, Plant a Pumpkin. Like other projects, our goal was to unite our community through art and creativity. In project: Plant a Pumpkin, we chose to involve local pubs, cafes, stores, eateries and community centers as a way to promote the village’s local businesses. Each pumpkin was strategically placed with the intent to bring village wanderers and shoppers to establishments that we choose to support.

Some Chosen Establishments:
