Pumpkin festival fun for all

October 09, 2013

Families came out in droves to Bates Nut Farm for the annual Pumpkin Festival held Saturday. Attendees at the event enjoyed the petting zoo, children’s rides, and mouthwatering delicacies such as roasted corn and BBQ. More than 100 vendors offered arts and crafts for those looking for that one-of-a-kind item. Pictured clockwise from top left, Isabella Ayala, 6, takes a ride down an inflatable slide.
