Higashikagura Pumpkin Carving 2015 (re-post)

You may be wondering, “Why am I seeing event posts about Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. in mid-August..? You okay, Webmaster?” Don’t worry, I am A-okay. This post was originally on HAJET’s former website, and the new one’s looking a little empty. Use this event as a great example of what *you* can do with HAJET International Event Funding!


Hey y’all! Prepare for a double dose of Halloween good times brought to you by Jean Szu-Chuan Lien of Higashikagura and HAJET international event funding! (For real, don’t be shy about starting up a yearly tradition in your town!)


Higashikagura Pumpkin Carving was held on 24 October, 2015. Most participants have never carved a pumpkin before, therefore we invited three volunteers to come and show them how. Thanks to HAJET event funding, we were able to purchase pumpkin carving kits, which were much safer tools for beginners. Participants were able to carve at least one pumpkin each within the allocated time, and they were lit up with LED candles at the end.
