Southwick family brings community to carve pumpkins together

Hampden County

A Southwick family continued a 37-year tradition Tuesday night. 

The Cigal family invites hundreds of people into their home to carve pumpkins, which they then display in the front of the house every year.

The house has become a big Halloween attraction in Southwick. All of the pumpkins have different characters and words carved into them. 

Clayton Cigal, Jr. told 22News why it’s important to continue to do this every year. “I think it brings our family together, and we have a great time doing it and I think the world needs a little bit of this.” 

The Cigal family said they have people who have been coming for 30 years who are now bringing their children to come carve pumpkins.
