EUGENE, Ore. -- People stopped in downtown Eugene on Sunday to get an up-close look at giant pumpkin carvings.

Tom Lindskog is a local pumpkin carver and this is his third year carving at the Fifth Street Public Market.

He's carving three giant pumpkins in total and this year, one of the pumpkins is 1400 pounds. He also has a very special theme for all of them.

"This year I decided to do Where the Wild Things Are. I have the wild rumpus on the 1400 pound pumpkin and then one character upstairs...and then I'll do two scenes on this pumpkin right here," said Lindskog.

These giant pumpkins are part of the decorations for Haunted Market. It's a family-friendly event that starts Monday night. It goes from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on October 30th and 31st.

The cost is 3 cans or $3-dollars per child. The funds raised will go to Food for Lane County.
