Carve a little time out of your daily commute between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. to see Ray Villafane and his team begin their work on an impressive zombie carving. Ray Villafane is an Arizona-based sculptor best known for his highly detailed pumpkin carvings. A regular competitor on the Food Network, Villafane was recently a finalist on Halloween Wars.

The apocalyptic pumpkin sculpture will begin coming to life on October 17, but those who want to see the finished projects in all its bone-chilling glory will have to come to our Pumpkin Carving Weekend here at NYBG on October 18 19, when Ray will continue to lead festive demonstrations for visitors.
