Pumpkin Show

10372771084_52908f9715One event I participate in almost every year is the Circleville Pumpkin Show. This is a event that is held every year in October in Circleville Ohio. This event first started in October of 1903. The Pumpkin Show is always the third Wednesday through Saturday in October.  It first was a humble street fair, but has turned into something much bigger. It now has lots of rides, food booths, parades, games, and other attractions. Every day there is a certain parade, all of them are different and have a different theme. There is one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. My favorite parade is the parade of bands.

The best days are during the week, there are still a lot of people, but it doesn’t compare to what it is like on the weekend. The weekend is packed with people, and you can’t hardly walk through the crowds of people. You could stay the entire show and you still might have seen something, or something you didn’t do the day before. I have been going to Pumpkin Show for almost my entire life, and I always have a good time. If you do ever go to Pumpkin Show, never leave without having a pumpkin doughnut from Lindesy’s bakery. The have the best doughnuts and cookies.

I have taken part in this event by working at a food both. Its amazing how many different people you see walking by. Sometimes there is hardly anyone who comes to the both, and the next second you have 20 people waiting to buy something. You get a different perspective of the show when you are working the booth instead of buying something from the booth. Pumpkin Show is a really neat and fun experience, if you ever get the chance to come I highly advise you too.
