A day at the Pumpkin Sea
Pumpkin Festival in Ludwigsburg -
Saturday, 16 October 2010

Dear members and friends,

We would like to invite you to join us for a day at the Pumpkin Sea!
This year's Annual Pumpkin Festival in Ludwigsburg has an ocean theme. Pack your swimming costume and dive into the colorful world of the oceans, marine life, fun and fantastic sandy beaches - in the middle of the Baroque.

Under the motto "Pumpkin Sea", there are beautiful sculptures and displays. Elegant dolphins, giant octopi and mermaids populate the pumpkin sea. See fishing boats, a lighthouse and a deserted island. Visit a huge shoal of fish and other marine life at the beach. Admire colorful gourds in bizarre shapes, aromatic edible pumpkins, bright and impressive Schnitzkürbisse gourds. About 500,000 of the interesting fruits in more than 450 varieties from around the world are in the park. Of course you can taste the delicious food: pumpkin soup, pumpkin bread, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin pie and pumpkin Champagne. Shop for original decorations, recipe books, and seeds or specialties such as pumpkin marmalade. Immerse yourself in the maritime world of pumpkins! We look forward to seeing you.
