“She was crying and she said, 'It's so easy for adults to lose the wonderment of childhood. When you get older, you never feel like you did when you woke up on Christmas morning. Well, I want to tell you that I got that feeling here.'”

There's nobody like Ricky and no place like his Kenova Pumpkin House. Thanks to you Ricky, and all the people who participate in this awesome event. Can't wait to see it again this year.

We went last night and it was packed!! I've never seen so many people for a house with pumpkins!!! How this has grown! So if going on busier nights (Halloween, the weekend), allow plenty of time for parking and standing in a line to see everything! It is completely worth it though! He does such an amazing job!

For the ones that do not live her. Or never driven over to see the home when it is done.. You need to. Then drive over to Griffith and File Drug Store and check some of the history of this great town along with some incredible food. The only way you can be disapointed is to never go at all. Hats off to all that help make it happen..

The Pumpkin house is the one the things I miss most of home. I now live in Arkansas and I read every article and get on line just to see the pictures of the Pumpkin House Ric Griffeth and the town of Kenova keep up the awesome work.

Even tho I live in Kenova, every year it's a thrill to go and see the Pumpkins that Ric Griffith has. It makes me remember how I felt as a child, only MUCH better. Ric, thanks for doing such an awesome job. Each year I look forward to going to the Pumpkin house.A thank you doesn't do you justice.Thank you for helping some of us share the magic of the Halloween holiday.
