A FRIGHT-fully Good Time was had by All!
Thanks to Everyone for a Great Pumpkin Festival 2013!
Cloudy skies and a few sprinkles could not dampen the enthusiasm for Pumpkin Festival 2013 as crowds of nearly 4,000 visitors turned out for this year’s terrific event! It raised some $50,000 to benefit the Hiram House Campership Fund for Children. Thanks to everyone who attended, volunteered, sponsored or supported us for our 42nd annual Pumpkin Festival! Please join us again next year!
