Local residents kicked off fall with the 38th annual Pumpkin Festival on Saturday in Pumpkintown. The event, which chairman Buddy Cox called “one of the largest one-day festivals in the state,” ran from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and drew thousands to the grounds around the Oolenoy Community Building for food, games, live music and arts and crafts.
