Windsor Pumpkin Festival

Date: Sunday October 21, 2012
Time: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Cost: FREE
Description:The Windsor Pumpkin Festival takes place every year on the Windsor Town Green. This is very much a family oriented affair as there are many things for young children to do. The day starts off with a pancake breakfast for a small fee and goes into full force with face painting, pumpkin painting, a scarecrow contest and my favorite of all, the Pumpkin Car Races! Yes, contestants enter pumpkins with wheels and race them down a track! Check out the video to see what I mean.

The festival takes place on the Windsor Town Green, which is surrounded by little shops and restaurants. It’s really easy to pick up a picnic lunch, lay out a blanket, and sit back and enjoy the festivities. The Windsor Pumpkin Festival is good old fashioned family fun. A great way to spend a day and enjoy the fall weather.
