Demonstrations included “Smashing Pumpkins” with liquid nitrogen, “Colorful Burning Pumpkins” with various salts, “The Foaming Pumpkin” with elephant’s toothpaste, and the grand finale of “The Self-Carving Pumpkin” using the ignition of acetylene gas generated by the reaction of calcium carbide with water.
