We were on the scene last year as Food Network star and master carver Ray Villafane went to work whittling giant pumpkins into zombies, but don’t worry if you missed this spectacle because he’ll be back on October 18th and 19th carving up a new batch of frightening pumpkin creatures.

After you get your fill of Mr. Villafane’s insane pumpkin creations, take an adventure through the Everett Children’s Garden, which has been transformed into an outdoor haunted house of horrors. Okay, maybe cute pumpkin spiders and a pumpkin playhouse aren’t exactly the most horrific things in the world, but you get the idea.

The Haunted Pumpkin Garden will be open until October 31, 2014.
