Belleville Students Shine at the Gardens Aglow-a-Lantern Carving Competition

 Belleville Students Shine at the Gardens Aglow-a-Lantern Carving Competition
Gardens Aglow is a pumpkin carving competition sponsored by Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr., Essex County Executive, The Board of Chosen Freeholders, The Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs and The Citizens Committee of The Essex County Presby Memorial Iris Gardens.
The panel of judges awarded the 1st Place Prize to the Belleville High School Art Students for the fourth year in a row. The pumpkins were carved in the classes of Belleville educators Christine Driskill, Joanne de Florio, and Michelle Sherrill.
The public was invited to view the gardens at dusk as they came to life with artfully carved jack-a-lanterns carved by Belleville high school students. The intricate and imaginative carvings had a Horror Film theme this year.
Congratulations to the following Belleville students for their win as well as their elaborate and stunning designs:
