It’s The Last Year For ‘Impaled Pumpkins’ At Kane And Strong In Cobble Hill

October 5, 2013

This just in from Jane Greengold – it’s the last year for Impaled Pumpkins at Kane and Strong. How can you be part of history? Read on:

For years, with the help of friends and family, I have impaled 100 pumpkins on the spikes of the iron fence on the corner of Kane and Strong in Cobble Hill for Halloween. Every pumpkin is unique. The impaled pumpkins are left for months, to age as nature commands, into gnarly remnants of themselves.

This will be my last version of Impalements at this location. Next year, it may appear at a new location.

Please join in for this final year, and help impale the most heads ever. Everyone can bring head. There are 274 spikes so there is room for a lot of participation.

To join in

choose the right size and kind of pumpkin – 4 ¾” – 5” inches in diameter, taller than it is

round, and soft enough to carve;


cut a 3/4” square hole in the middle of the bottom (for the spike);

carve a face;

remove the innards of the pumpkin through the facial features; and

Bring the carved pumpkin to the corner of Kane and Strong between 3 pm and 7 pm on October31, 2012. We will impale it!
