World’s Largest Jack O’ Lantern

First, a special thanks to Dominic at the Fortune Business Innovation Insiderblog for directing me to this story.

OK, this Halloween/Six Sigma connection is a small stretch… ConocoPhillips, the sponsor of this giant pumpkin, is a Six Sigma company. If you are in Southern California stop by the refinery for a visit:

“ConocoPhillips extends an invitation to the community to see Smilin’ Jack and enjoy some of his delicious caramel corn on the nights of October 30 and October 31, from 6 to 9 p.m. The ConocoPhillips refinery is located at 1660 West Anaheim Street, Wilmington, CA 90744, between the Harbor Freeway and Gaffey Street.”

    Flashback! Back in the day, they filled my dad’s boat with caramel corn!!! What’s the chance of getting some of that caramel corn sent to Iowa?

    A long standing tradition in my family to go see the BIG Pumpkin around Halloween. I have been going for years as a child and now I take my children every year.
    They still load the boats with dozens of bags of carmel corn. We look forward to it every year. It’s a bummer that it is only open on the 30th and 31st. now.
