It was pumpkins galore, a petting zoo, poffertjes. puppies, and plenty of preserves at the tenth annual Collector Village Pumpkin Festival today. Highlights of this year's event along with more than 80 stalls, farm machinery displays and the twang of a country duo on stage, included the heaviest pumpkin (weighing in at more than 248kg!), the best pumpkin pie, the best pumpkin scones, the best pumpkin scarecrow, the best pumpkin costume and the best gourmet pumpkin dish. A visit to the little town of Collector has become an annual pilgrimage for many, but for me it was my first time at the Pumpkin Festival (I know, what the heck took me so long!?). For more information and a view of a GIANT pumpkin, visit the web site.
