The Pumpkin Show
Mood:  happy
There's no better festival around than the Circleville Pumpkin Show. I went back home for it this weekend. Billed as the "Greatest Free Show on Earth," it lives up to its label. It is set on four main streets of my hometown of Circleville, plus a few side streets. Tens of thousands of people jam the streets for it. The food is awesome. LOL, I didn't try anything pumpkin, but they have everything imaginable, from pumpkin burgers to fudge, doughnuts, pie, ice cream, pancakes, pizza, and chili. It's famous for the world's largest pumpkin pie. This year, its top pumpkin weighed in at 1353 pounds. Talk about huge!! I got to see one of the terrific parades, and listen to a high school band perform, as well as a group whose lead guitar player was someone my husband and I went to school with. I bought some chocolate taffy and a few souvenirs. Mike and I had fun spending time with family. If you're ever in Ohio in October, check out the Pumpkin Show. LOL. It's downhome festivaling at its best.
