Are you wondering what to do this weekend? Why not head out to Snohomish for the continuation of the 2009 Festival of Pumpkins! A month long event, it started out with Pumpkin hurling and is wrapping up this weekend in downtown Snohomish with a full day of Pumpkin related activities.
October and the Snohomish Festival of Pumpkins are the perfect time to enjoy the beauty of the Snohomish County countryside and the bounty from our local farms. Search for the perfect pumpkin, enjoy an "a-maze-ing" experience in one of our local cornfields, see farm animals, and delight in a variety of activities for kids of all ages. Visit all five farms and see new and different activities at each farm.
On Satuday, October 24, Downtown Snohomish will host a series of fun events such as pumpkin pie eating contest, pumpkin carving, great Pumpkin River Race (win $300 for a $5 investment) , costume parade and many more childrens games.
If you haven't gotten your Pumpkins for Halloween yet, take a run out to Snohomish, pick one up from one of the participating farms and take part in some of the fun going on downtown. You will be glad you did!
