It’s that time of year when there is a fall air starts getting a crisp chill and spirits become restless in anticipation of the wicked fright-night on Halloween. As a kid growing up, I couldn’t wait for this holiday and I always associated the ritual of carving pumpkins to celebrate it. Okay the candy was a pretty “sweet deal” too but the build up to that special day of coming up with a costume, picking out the perfect pumpkins, and sitting around the table making scary or goofy looking faces, was something I still remember to this day. The great part is I get to relive it all with my young kids now and hand down this awesome tradition.
While I was out at the pumpkin patch with the family a couple weeks ago, I found what I thought was one of the most unusual pumpkin that I had ever seen. So of course I snapped a picture on my phone and shared it on Corona Tools Facebook. Some of the comments were so creative and well thought out, it made me think, why not have a pumpkin carving contest as part of our weekly giveaways…?!? So viola…here we are, the 2013 Corona Tools Great Pumpkin Carving Contest!
The Basic and Easy Rules
Have fun. It is Halloween after all! This is something that can be great fun for the whole family no matter how old you are.
It makes difference if you carve it or paint it, it just needs to be a pumpkin that is all made up for Halloween and gets people talking.
This is the 2013 Corona Tools Great Pumpkin Carving Contest, not 2012 or any other previous Halloween…it must be something you’ve created this year. And just to make sure there is no sneaking in your previous pumpkins designs or someone else’s (not that anyone would do that…!) you will need to get the Corona Facebook Page in the picture with your design. Place it next to your monitor showing the page or have the Corona page open on your mobile phone or tablet and grab a picture of your ghoulish creation! It’s that easy…
Submit your picture to Corona Tools Facebook. Just send it to us from the page and include;
- Your name
- Your email address (or other method to contact you if you win)
- The category you are entering (in case it isn’t obvious)
As soon as we get your picture, we’ll upload it to an album on our Facebook page and let people vote and comment on them. The more likes you get and the more comments you get, the better, so you will want to share it with your family and friends to vote for yours! You can also submit up to 3 pumpkin carving pictures to increase your chances of winning from 3 categories.
This contest starts 10/25 and ends at 11:59PM EST on 10/31! We’ll announce the winners on 11/1 but you’ll see how you are doing on Facebook. The one with the most like and comments on 10/31, in each category, will be deemed the winner.
The Categories and Winners
Since there are so many ways to decorate a pumpkin, we don’t want to limit creativity. We’ve come up with 3 categories to give you a shot at winning this promotion.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you did all this work, and people chose your design and you won? Well this contest is all about YOU! You carve it or decorate it, YOU share it to get people to vote for it and YOU WILL WIN*…!!! Let me state that again…if you get the votes, YOU WILL WIN! There is nothing left to chance so you can make it happen. And since YOU are doing all the work, YOU get to choose your prize. That’s right…YOU PICK your favorite Corona Tool prize from all the previous giveaways we’ve done with the exception of our partner giveaways.
