If I'm remembering correctly, there are between 7-8K pumpkins every year for the display.  It's a mix of 'funkins' and real.  The weather in the Hudson Valley is very changeable this time of year, so for really elaborate displays like the dinos, the dancing ghouls, snakes, etc., it isn't practical to put real ones in the display - they'd rot too quickly.  And they're big.  So the really complex stuff is funkins and most of the work is front end, getting it carved the first time.  

I don't know what the ratio of fake: real pumpkins is, but I know they're constantly carving for the month ahead of time, because the real ones they put out do need to be replaced partly through the event run....
