Pumpkin Animals

Last year I blogged about a fabulous pumpkin festival I went to in Germany.  Each year, they have different themes for the festival.  I found some pictures from one year when they did a farm animal themed festival.  Let’s take a look!


I love these black and white cows.

Each year they move the various sculptures around to different parts in Germany/Austria/Switzerland… this is moved to somewhere along a lake.

How cute is this tractor?

Of course a German cow would have a cute bell!  Also, like how the udder is made of gourds?

I think this goat is just adorable!

A pig and piglets!

How cute is this??

One more cow to end…

I thought this festival was so incredibly cute!  I wish I had gone during that year instead of the sports themed year last year.  Which one is your favorite?  I think I like the goat the best.

Be sure to check out my trip last year.  They have over 450,000 pumpkins!!

    These are magnificent I have never seen natural black pumpkins or did they paint them and what material do you know they used to make the heads of these animals they're huge did you see them compared to the humans? wouldn't want to be on their food chain.Susie
