The mayor of a town in West Virginia has a penchant for pumpkins. For Halloween he's decorated his house with a lot of them.

It took hundreds of people to do this and every person had a job. Some cleaned the pumpkins, others scooped out the seeds, and the most creative volunteers did the carving.

"Getting the community involved and helping us present this," said Mayor Ric Griffith. "It's always fun to have the kids and the adults help us."

A total of 3,000 pumpkins adorned the house.
