Noel Dickover has been designing and carving Halloween pumpkins for 21 years. And each Halloween, more than 1,000 people visit his front yard at 14223 Hartwood Court in Centreville to see the fanciful array of fantasy pumpkins he and his family have created.
This year’s highlights include Baby Shark, the Hobbit, Superman, Spiderman vs. Lava Monster, Alice in Wonderland, Metropolis, Pikachu, Washington Mystics Championship, Dark Crystal, Jack Skellington, and Pooh Bear and Piglet. And this Thursday, Oct. 31, they’ll be among more than 30 pumpkins on display outside Dickover’s home. They’ll depict everything from cartoon characters for children to scary and intricate scenes from science-fiction novels, movies and video games. For a preview, go to www.fantasypumpkins.com.
