Underwater pumpkin carving in Key Largo



Key Largo, Florida – On Sunday several scuba divers plunged 30 feet underwater at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to compete in the annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest near a shallow coral reef about five miles off Key Largo.

According to the Florida Keys News Bureau, the deep sea maestros used dive knives and fine carving tools to transform their pumpkins.

Among the competing designs were an octopus, airplane, jellyfish, hearts, and of course, a jack-o-lantern.

The winner of the contest was Dan Eidsmoe from Chicago with his shark-inspired gourd. For extra flair, he incorporated a strobe light.
