BOISE -- About a dozen scuba divers from Dive Magic descended on Quinn's Pond Saturday morning at to take part in the group’s Halloween tradition.

Divers get into the water with a pumpkin fresh from the fields and are not allowed to come to the surface until they are done carving it for the competition.

Challenges divers face include bitter cold, low visibility and the hazards of sharp tools next to air hoses. Divers love doing this competition year after year.

This years winners received gift cards worth more than $100 to the local dive shop.
