Meet The Picasso of Pumpkins


Local artist Ray Villafane is taking pumpkin carving to a whole different level.

These pumpkins are sculpted, not carved. Ray Villafane started sculpting pumpkins back when he was an art teacher in Michigan. A student brought a pumpkin to his classroom and the rest was history. Pumpkins are now a full time gig for Ray, He’s traveled the world carving pumpkins year-round but you can find his designs right in the heart of Carefree at the Enchanted Pumpkin Garden. You’ll find pumpkins. scarecrows and more all designed by Ray and his team. You may even catch the Pumpkin Picasso himself working away on his latest design.
