What a fabulous time our first ever Pumpkin Festival turned out to be! With games for kids, amazing craft vendors, and a delicious lunch by St. Paul's Anglican and Knox United churches.
The most popular event for the kids was the horse and wagon rides provided by Bob Case.
For adults, it was watching the four great catapults launch their pumpkins into the field. Del Sousa (Hugh Moggy's son in law) and Andy Roque were the champions of this event.
Everyone loved watching kids and adults alike stick their hands into this bowl of goo to pull out a seed for the Seed Spitting Contest!
