Families from all around the Santa Clarita Valley attended the Aquatic Center’s 7th annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest and Spooky Family Fair.

The event featured fun fulfilled activities for the kids including, games, prizes, arts and crafts and face painting.

A projector was displayed for the many families in attendance to witness a unique viewing for pumpkin carving.

The teams of scuba divers had 30 minutes to carve a pumpkin underwater. The winner was chosen by the people in attendance who were able to vote on their favorite pumpkin carving.

This is one of four events that the Santa Clarita Aquatic Center presents free of charge to the community and for all to attend. “It’s a really fun family-friendly environment,” said Stephanie Dunn Program Specialist of the Santa Clarita Aquatic Center. “Its really a celebration of the season.”
