A Posse is Gathering
Clear skies and a cool breeze are hinting that summer is almost over...but there's still time to enjoy one more festival! The annual Morton Pumpkin Festival is an authentically local experience with community-based attractions for all ages. Beginning Wednesday September 10, you can enjoy four days of local crafts, food, merchants, musicians and more! And, be sure to stay for Saturday's parade, highlighting this year's theme of "Pumpkins of the West".
While in the 'Pumpkin Capital of the World', you can sample pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pie, pumpkin chili, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin shakes, pumpkin muffins and more. We decided it's permissible to have more than one favorite!
Hey, I Know You!
It takes an estimated 2,000 volunteers to make the festival a success each year, and your local banker may even be one of them!
