Pumpkin Festivals
Halloween Pumpkin Festival
Pumpkin festivals are a great way to celebrate the spooky season. These Fall festivals usually include a variety of activities such as costume contests, face painting, Halloween parades, vendors, entertainment and of course huge carved pumpkin displays as the main event. While many communities around the country hold a Pumpkin or Fall festival, some of the largest events include:


Keene, New Hampshire
Pumpkin Festivals
Keene is full of fascinating things to see and do—especially during Pumpkin Festival time! In 2007 the Pumpkin Festival displayed 25,644 carved pumpkins and has set numerous world records. In 2003, they broke their own world record by having 28,952 carved pumpkins on display at on time, in one place! The Keene Pumpkin Festival is held each year during New Hampshire’s brilliant foliage season…reason enough to visit. http://www.pumpkinfestival.org/


Boston, Massachusetts
Visit a Pumpkin Festival for HalloweenIn 2006, Bostonians carved and lit 30,128 jack-o’-lanterns to shatter the Guinness World Record. In 2007, the Boston Pumpkin Festival worked once again to smash their own record for the most lit jack-o-lanterns at one place, at one time. Even though they fell short, they still carved over 21,000 pumpkins! This year’s event promises to be just as exciting with live music, face painting, children’s activities, great food, and of course — pumpkin carving!

Maine Pumpkin Festival - Cumberland, Maine
Halloween Pumpkin Jack O' LanternsThis year, Camp Sunshine is gearing up again to beat the World Record but in Maine! This year’s event will take place at the Cumberland Fairgrounds and promises to be just as exciting with live music, face painting, children’s games, lots of great food, and pumpkin carving, of course! Make this annual event a tradition for your family and friends if you live in the area. Join in for a day of pumpkins, entertainment, and family fun at the Cumberland Fairgrounds!

Visit a Pumpkin Patch
If there are no Pumpkin Festivals near you, you can also visit a real pumpkin farm. These farms can be found across the nation from the West coast to the East coast, and they often have all kinds of events planned for the month of October. Look in your local phone book for Christmas tree farms, most of them grow pumpkins as well.

When visiting or investigating any spooky place be sure to obey all local laws and always respect the privacy of land owners and residents. Always get advance permission to enter private property. Never trespass on, take anything from or damage anyone's private property. Always show respect!
