As we are still tourists in our new land we decided that we had to go visit the Keene, NH pumpkin festival on the 22nd. We weren’t disappointed either! What a festival!
Never have I ever seen so many carved pumpkins in one place!
Glad I didn’t have that guy’s job though!
There was food and music as well and even though the weather wasn’t the greatest we had an amazing time. Keene is a really fun little town too.
The greatest thing about it? The sense of community. Something like this event wouldn’t be possible just anywhere. No one disturbed the displays, everyone was contributing to the attempt to break the world record (you are asked to bring a carved pumpkin to the festival!). It was amazing.
There was even pumpkin bowling!
And when night fell it got even better!
Come to the Pumpkin Festival you must!
See the complete set of photos we took here.
Wishing you all a happy and safe Halloween!
