Long Description:
Nick (along with his wife Bambi) is a local hero whose generosity is admired by all. He opened up his farm to allow children from all schools in the region to select their own free pumpkin, and schools have been doing this for several generations. The statue was commissioned and dedicated after his death in 2004.

Fred Darpino is the sculptor of the Pumpkin Man. He still lives in Colorado Springs and has a fine art studio and Gallery in Manitou Springs. Go to (visit link) for more info.
