SEYMOUR >> Nothing says fall in the Valley quite like the annual Seymour Pumpkin Festival, and with this being the 50th anniversary of the autumn tradition, organizers are planning a celebration bigger and better than ever.
The stage is set for the 50th annual festival to take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 20 at French Memorial Park, located at the junction of Route 67 and Spruce Street. The festival will be held rain or shine. Admission is free.
The park will again be transformed into a Halloween haven of more than 100 juried arts and crafts booths, food vendors, children’s activities, pumpkin and scarecrow decorating contests, music from the band Phoenix and more. The seven-acre park lends itself to the festival, due its terrain, with each section of the park bearing a special name, like Goblin’s Gulch, Witches Walk, Pumpkin Patch and Scarecrow Alley.
