Nothing symbolizes the arrival of autumn more than giant pumpkins. If you’re looking for pumpkins with a flair of homespun Americana, there’s no better place to go than to one of the nation’s largest pumpkin festivals. Visitors from all 50 states and many foreign countries come to see giant pumpkins, parades, entertainment, contests and sample pumpkin-flavored delicacies. Reportedly Ohio’s oldest and largest festival, this show has been called “The Greatest Free Show on Earth.” The Circleville Pumpkin Show kicks off with area pumpkin growers vying for the coveted Giant Pumpkin Trophy. Pumpkin fans hope this year’s winning pumpkin will break a record yet again. Bakers at Lindsey’s Bakery in Circleville will continue their 59-year tradition of making one of the world’s largest pumpkin pies during the Pumpkin Show.
