Waterford Pumpkinfest

This past weekend my family and I loaded up our 1966 Mercury and took the country back roads to a small town called Waterford, Ontario for the 32nd annual Waterford Pumpkinfest. 
There is a giant jack-o-lantern pyramid in the centre of town. The local school children carve them and brought them here to kick off Pumpkinfest on Thursday. 

The town has an abundance of beautiful old homes all decorated for Halloween.

There was also a zombie walk, a carnival, 

food trucks everywhere, the annual Pumpkin Bowl high school football game, 

and a very large antiques shop that had this most beautiful sign 

Now all I need is a tavern or a barn! 

The Waterford Pumpkinfest has a wide range of family friendly activities from Thursday through Sunday, including a parade and a soap box derby. Our plan next year is to find a local pumpkin patch to visit while we are there. 

There are quite a few pictures on Facebook and Instagram, check them out using the hashtag #waterfordpumpkinfest
