Phoenix Magazine Rates Carefree's Enchanted Pumpkin Garden voted BEST IN VALLEY for 2016! 
Town of Carefree will host the 2nd annual Enchanted Pumpkin Garden, created by world renowned artist, Ray Villafane October 17 - 31. The pumpkins are still keeping time to the Carefree Sundial (which is the 3rd largest in the world) but 2016 will garner all new pumpkin Vignettes and even a little Pumpkin town that will take you back into time.
