MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A local restaurant is holding its annual staff Halloween pumpkin contest this weekend, featuring some creative entries. And you can decide which one squashed the competition.

See a slideshow of the pumpkins here

According to an employee at The Original Benjamin’s Calabash Seafood on North Kings Highway, ballots are available on the tables where the pumpkins are displayed. The winning staff member receives $200, the runner-up receives $150 and the second runner-up receives $75.

The judges - self-proclaimed “scaredy-cats” - asked that submissions not be scary. Among the entries were a Donald Trump pumpkin, a Finding Nemo-themed pumpkin, a jellyfish pumpkin, a Yoda pumpkin and a pumpkin tribute to the children’s rhyme There was an Old Woman who Swallowed a Fly.

    Several people who live on the side streets of Ocean Blvd. in North Myrtle Beach recently received a letter saying they need to get rid of obstructions in front of their homes. The city says that’s because the space could be used for public parking. Around 30 people came out to the city council meeting on Monday to speak out about the issue.
