A friend of mine suggested that something like this would make a great festival for Pottstown. As many residents recall, tractor trailer loads of pumpkins made their way into Pottstown every fall to become Mrs. Smith’s pumpkin pie, before the company was sold. She suggested in addition to the pumpkin carving that a “pumpkin toss” might be fun when the pumpkin viewing was all over.
Several locations come to mind, Memorial Park or Riverfront Park would be at the top of the list.
This would be a great “homage” to Pottstown’s past. Pumpkin parade, pumpkin queen, Pumpkin 5K and the list goes on and on 🙂
