Great Pumpkin Project participant Noah Fentz has placed 13 total jacks. He even made a sight for them. Check it out at thecreepyhousenextdoor.com/pumpkinproject.html
I know I'm a bit late to this, as getting back to reality after a 2 week Halloween vacation has driven me mad. There were so many amazing contributions in this last batch!
So glad to see this project make so many people happy and see it spread so far.
More of Hazel's incredible pics from Scottland.
Awesome sunset pics from Debbie!
Jen and Rob from PA, gave their town some Halloween spirit.

Jolie with another placement. One of the more sinister looking jacks I've seen. Love those chompers!
31 pumpkins. 31 locations. 31 garbage bags of pumpkin guts. When I started this project I didn't honestly think it would become what it has. I didn't think it would spread as far as it did. I never expected the amazing contributions people have made.
With the last jack, went back to the location that inspired the whole thing. Last year I placed a single jack on this same doorstep, because I felt it needed it. It brought me such great joy to see it lit in the night. I was left thinking that I wish it wasn't me who put it there and wish I had stumbled upon it. So with that feeling, the project was born.
People who love this holiday are extremely passionate about it, and this project proves it. From within the state of NJ, to across the pond, people's love for this great holiday shown in spades, with all the pictures and kind words.
I can't thank you all enough for participating. Thanks a million to the Mike and Dave for making drops while I was away. Thanks to Rot and Bean for promoting the hell outta this and keeping me goin. Thank you everyone on the blog, and your kind and encouraging comments.
This is now tradition. Hopefully it will grow every year.
In an age of trunk or treat, and glitter decorations, this project was made to help preserve the old ways of Halloween, to go back to its roots. If these jacks have put a feeling of nostalgia and the old ways Halloween into the people who have seen them, then it was a success.
Thank You All So Much!
Till Next Year. Hail The Harvest.
With all the running around, and leaving pumpkins everywhere, I relize that we didn't carve one for ourselves. So the 30th placement is right on our front porch. Wouldn't be right without it.
Amazing pics continue to roll in. I am extremely greatful to everyone who has contributed. Shear genius!

Debbie's second jack, guardian of the chimney.
While on our vacation in New England, I brought along to jacks with me. One was planted on Annie's bridge in Vermont as seen before. The other one was left on the doorsteps of the city hall of the greatest city in the world, Salem Mass. This needed to be done. So there he sits, grinning.
This set of pics was taken near an old railroad station somewhat close to where I live. If you have seen the movie "The Station Agent", it may look familiar to you.
It stared a then unknown Peter Dinkledge, of Game Of Thrones fame. The shots taken here are at a few spots, the jack was eventually left on the caboos.
