Another competition in the art section was for the kids to create art from pumpkins. They were told to paint and/or decorate pumpkins to create anything they wanted. This entry (right) is the Nyngan Show Champion and first prize winner. The artist created Olaf (a snowman) from the Disney movie 'Frozen' by painting and decorating the pumpkins.
