I went to Pumpkinfest this past weekend in Port Elgin. Its great! They have a classic car show downtown on Saturday and Sunday. The downtown is closed off but there is a free shuttle that runs from the local golf course. They also had a petting zoo with goats, a donkey, pony and a lamma for the kids. There are also rides, dog show, music groups singing and a craft show. There was a booth at the craft show from a new store in Walkerton that sells natural bath products. I got to meet the owner and look at her products.
They have farmers bring in their largest pumpkins. Some of them weigh over a 1000 pounds! Then someone carves faces on them.
If you decide to go next year, dress warm. It almost always rains or even snows during Pumpkinfest.
