Weekend Fun: Circleville Pumpkin Show

This weekend, my family and I headed down to Circleville for the annual Pumpkin Show. The Circleville Pumpkin Show attracts over 400,000 visitors (100,000 per day) to this small community of 12,000 people. They come to see the giant pumpkins, the world's largest Pumpkin Pie, parades, entertainment, attractions, and try various pumpkin-flavored goodies. For us, it's becoming a tradition that we look forward to each year. Here are a few snapshots from the show:

Have a great week, everyone!

  4. I am just now realizing how little I've tried in terms of pumpkin flavored items. There's more to coffee, pumpkin, bread, and cheesecake/pie ;)
