In Australia, the ultimate Halloween pumpkin carving competition was held at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium on Tuesday, as divers took up the challenge in the company of aquatic life of all shapes and sizes.

Similar scenes were seen on Wednesday in the US, where a group of scuba divers submerged nine metres beneath the ocean’s surface in the Florida Keys to carve pumpkins.

That evening in Hollywood, thousands of people turned out for the annual Halloween Carnaval. Revellers took to the streets dressed as ghosts and ghouls to celebrate the occasion.
