Thousands enjoy Seymour Pumpkin Festival under fair skies
By Jean Falbo-Sosnovich
SEYMOUR >> Thousands of people converged on French Memorial Park Sunday (Sept. 20) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the town’s longest-standing traditions, the Seymour Pumpkin Festival.
The glorious, pre-fall weather drew upwards of 30,000 people to the fair grounds, not to mention the live music, midway rides, petting zoo and more than 100 vendor and food booths peddling fried dough, giant whoopee pies, fall crafts and more.
“It’s a very special day,” said Patricia Wasko, a volunteer with the Seymour Pumpkin Festival Association for 24 years. “We’re so happy with the attendance and seeing so many families come out today … that’s what the festival is all about.”
