Tim Girard of Black Creek really gets into the spirit of Halloween. In fact, his annual tradition is many months in the making. Tim grows pumpkins, harvests them, then carves intricate Jack-o’-lanterns to put on display Halloween night.

He’s been doing it for as long as he can remember.

“Oh, 25 years or more,” he said. “I had 26 of them out there this year. Last year I had 45. It all depends how many I grow. I was actually lucky to even get that many this year.

And why does he do it?

“I like putting smiles on people’s faces,” he said.

Mission accomplished.
