Here in Damariscotta, Maine the big event of the year, the annual Pumpkinfest & Regatta is going on. For a tiny, sleepy town it is amazing the number of people who flock here for this event. Yesterday coming up it took us 1 hour to travel the last 11 miles to my sister's house because of the traffic.
I went out early this morning to view the decorated pumpkins that line the street. Here are a few of the wonderful decorated ones.
Later I walked back into town to sketch. This looked like a good bet for my Inktober 2018 - Day 6 sketch because most of it was already black and white. The artist, Ari Edgar left markers for people to add their names of something to the pumpkin like these two little girls are doing.
