This picture was taken in 1983 during the annual Pumpkin Festival at the Cobblestone Museum.

Here we see examples of pumpkins entered in the jack o’ lantern contest. Individuals posted on the platform include, from left: Marsha Bolton, Dee Dee States, Pamela Frame, Allison Lattin, unidentified boy and Adrienne Lattin.

At the time Ms. Frame from Fairport was a guest cellist through the Orleans County Council on the Arts. Hence the jack o’ lantern displayed on the smal standl with a cello carved into it.
