Over 550 pumpkins of various sizes, over 9,000 pounds of pumpkins will be available as North Star Energy and Construction hosts their fifth annual Pumpkin Festival this weekend in Buffalo's Washington Park.
The Pumpkin Festival has become one event to look forward to every Halloween in Buffalo, according to Event Coordinator Michelle Jensen. What started as a family-oriented event by Three-Way, Inc. has progressed into an annual tradition.
Jensen tells us more about the festival.
This year's Pumpkin Festival will be this Saturday at City Park beginning at 11am.
There will be pumpkin carving and decorating for kids of all ages, games, a sack race, cake walk and lots more to do.
Face painting will be offered by artist Jenny Wuerker for a small fee.
Hot dogs, chips and punch will be provided.
The Pumpkin Festival is free for all and the entire community is invited to come and enjoy. Everyone is asked to bring a donation of non-perishable or canned goods for the Bread Of Life Food Pantry to help stock their shelves for the Holidays.
