The Maniac Pumpkin Carvers will be visiting Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market. They will be at the market on Saturday the 29th of October starting at 11 AM. This is a great, family-friendly event, and as always, it's FREE. See you on Saturday!
It's a wonderful year when Halloween falls on a Monday! In New York City, that traditionally means New Yorkers set aside an entire weekend for enchanted revelry of all kinds. That means Hell's Kitchen Flea Market is where New Yorkers will kick off the weekend!
Please make sure to join us at 11AM on Saturday morning at the flea. There will be a demonstration of pumpkin carving by the Maniac Pumpkin Carvers. They are known worldwide for having perfected the art of pumpkin carving. Even if you can't make the demo, come visit us during the weekend to see these memorable sculptures!
Every year in high school, Marc and Chris spent weeks transforming a section of the school into a series of delightfully terrifying haunted houses. Then, while both studied at Parsons School of Design, the duo rekindled their love for pumpkin carving and decided to make a career out of it.
Maniac Pumpkin Carvers was formed with the mission of creating the best pumpkin artwork available. What started in a basement apartment has now grown to a full creative studio of talented artists and pumpkin carvers.
After experimenting and developing their own techniques, Marc and Chris soon began to push the boundaries of basic pumpkin carving. Word of mouth spread to the biggest names in New York, including the New York Yankees, Food Network, and Martha Stewart. Their art has even been displayed at The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, Yankee Stadium. Other appearances include Good Morning America, Rachael Ray, The Kitchen, The Chew, Wired, Popular Mechanics, Yahoo News, CNN, and more. They even have been the winners of Food Network's Halloween Wars.
