As Halloween approaches and the weather continues to cool, pumpkin season is at its peak power. There are pumpkin festivals all over the country, and if you visit any, these should be at the top of your list.
Most lists will have the New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival at No 1. This Laconia-held festival boasts some of the largest numbers of jack-o-lanterns and biggest pumpkins in the region. Each year, more than 40,000 people attend for pumpkin carving, live music and much more.
A few hundred miles south, Clarence, New York, is home to the Great Pumpkin Farm. Not to be confused with the gourd deity from Peanuts, this farm hosts a pumpkin festival each year with amusement rides, plenty of places to eat and drink and, of course, tons and tons of pumpkins. This festival is about 30 miles outside Buffalo.
This last one is more of an event, but regardless, warrants a visit. Each fall, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden hosts Autumn at the Arboretum. This festival places more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash to create an incredible fall display. This year’s theme, funnily enough, is It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
