BATTLEGROUND, Ind. (WLFI) — One local folk artist has given life to one of his short poems. You can see his larger than life creation Halloween night in Battle Ground.

Eric Hicks' poem, Mr. Frumpkin's Pumpkin, highlights the tale of a farmer who plants a very large pumpkin and uses it as a home and eventually a source of food. Even though Mr. Frumpkin vanishes at the end of the story after eating the pumpkin, Hicks hopes that the spirit of Halloween and creativity will stay alive long after the night

"What I would like to see happen from this is people to look at the world like a child does. You know where anything can happen and to use your imagination a little bit," said Hicks.

A video of the poem can be seen here.
