A pyramid of pumpkins! Now that is something to see.
They have all kinds of rides, attractions, and parades....but let's face it. We went there to eat. And we did. I'm pretty sure that I will not need another deep fried sauerkraut ball for a good long time.
These were the runners-up. Not even close to the 1,666lbs winner!
We also wanted to see the big pumpkins. Technically I think they are gourds but who cares big hilarious pumpkins are always something to see.
These crazy gourds were off the hook.
They also have a huge pumpkin display with almost every variety you can think of - and all kinds of squash. Their prices are pretty good but I can do better at the auction or one of the roadside stands. It's still fun to see the pumpkins shining in the sun - and the huge pumpkin pyramid.
And one really big watermelon.
There are a lot of pumpkin snacks. Any kind of food becomes pumpkin.... pumpkin chili, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin shakes, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin burgers.... it's endless.
The Pumpkin Show is a terrific family event. Everyone dresses up in funny pumpkin hats, orange shirts, the whole thing. It really is fun.
Happy Friday everyone! Do you have a little free time? Drive on over to the Pumpkin Show - you won't regret it!
