A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Update 2022: The servers are closed for the season, see you in 2023!

Welcome to Scenic Ghost Town! There's nobody here.™

...And that's why we need you! Mayor Bones invites you, your friends, your relatives, and literally anyone else you can drag along to come and take part in the celebration!

Carve pumpkins!

There's a frightening lack of jack-o-lanterns this year, and that's why we're recruiting you to make some!

Show them off on the World Wide Web!

Once you've finished your creation, bring it to the festival and share it with the world!

Attract ghosts!

It wouldn't be a ghost town without ghosts! Maybe if we get enough pumpkins, we can get this festival really haunted!

Spooky regards,
Mayor Bones

This game features user-generated content. While there is a community reporting feature, there may be a chance you come across inappropriate content before anyone else has been able to report it. If you are playing this game with your child, you may want to use parental supervision.


This is an online game. Any data you upload is probably not secure, so please don't provide any personal information in a pumpkin name or on the pumpkin itself. The only other information this game will collect is a unique device identifier and your IP address to keep track of your user activity. This information will be deleted after the festival shuts down in November.
