LACONIA, N.H. (AP) - They’re celebrating all things pumpkin in Laconia, New Hampshire.

An estimated 40,000 people are expected to attend an annual pumpkin festival on Saturday to see thousands of lit jack-o-lanterns.

Visitors can bring a jack-o-lantern and a candle to contribute toward a world record attempt.

A 900-pound pumpkin, carved by Richard Carey, of Broome County, New York, is at the base of the pumpkin tower.

There’s a haunted mill attraction, races, and other attractions.
