Carden Country School Pumpkin Parade boasts bevy of gorgeous gourds | Photo gallery

The 29th annual Carden Country School Pumpkin Parade again took over the rural campus Friday, Oct. 25, with a pack of picturesque pumpkin creations made by students set out for display.

Awards were given in various categories, as judged by this year’s officials: Bainbridge Island Police Department Interim Chief Jeff Horn, BIPD Officer Carla Sias, senior Review staffer Luciano Marano, and Kyle Rohl, a member of the very first graduating class of Carden Country School.

Sage Mei Fang Ehrich’s multi-pumpkin “Mount Squashmore” was voted Most Creative, Nellie Harvey’s deftly-painted Pumpkin of Pumpkins Most Artistic, Wyatt Membrere’s stark jailhouse creation “Isolation” the Most Original, and Madison Gambee’s multimedia masterpiece “Dance of the Sugarplum” took home this year’s Gourd Award for most transformed pumpkin.

Tristan Chabot claimed the Best in Show prize for the younger grades (JP-3) for his dynamic creation “Avengers vs. The Kracken,” and Genevieve Kramer’s “Posh Panda” was Best in Show among the upperclassmen.

Torah Russell’s eye-catching “Eye See You” claimed Best in Show overall.

Samson Sheehy’s clever “Soupy Scoop of Ice Cream” received the People’s Choice Award in a school-wide vote.

Marano was there, camera in hand, to capture the artsy action. His favorite shots are collected here.
