We were just visiting last year when we attended Pumpkinfest, but this year we are residents attending one of the many community functions our town holds each year.
This is one of our favorite most especially because of the Pumpkin Roll. Basically you pick your pumpkin and roll it down a HUGE hill and whoever’s makes it the farthest wins! This year there were over 300 rollers!
As we were headed back to the car we spotted this crazy guy! A Tree! Noah was the only brave soul to grab a pic with Tree Dude and this is him sheepishly walking out of his clutches.
After lunch (and funnel cake!) we headed out to Hayesville for the Pumpkin Chunkin’. Participants build catapults (yes! actual catapults!) and sling pumpkins as far as possible. The one team who does this wins. The farthest was over 900 feet! Pretty awesome to watch. :o)
Afterwards the kids played in the two bouncy houses they had set up and Noah took a chance on winning a fish. I love this game, but was crossing my fingers that he did NOT make it into a bowl!
Here is where Lorelei hung out at the Pumpkin Chunkin’. We are getting good use out of the Ergo!
We enjoyed our day of family fun and I realized that we are rolling (ha!) into our busy season. Jason is headed to Florida this weekend to help my mom move and the kids and I will be headed to a Trunk or Treat. I have a feeling each weekend will be filled with something from now until Christmas. Woooh!
