Scarecrows Takeover Colusa County

[slideshow_deploy id=’73179′]

The autumn season has arrived, and that means Colusa County is gearing up for fall festivals and traditions.

Arbuckle Pumpkin Festival

As quick as the day started, pumpkins were being carted off to their new homes to scare away the ghouls and goblins come All Hallow’s Eve.

On Sunday, October 4, 2015,  the Arbuckle Revitalization held its annual Pumpkin Festival with success.

“We had a great turnout,” said ARC Board Member Jacqueline Gonzalez, who was managing the pumpkin booth for the day.

Gonzalez commented that the group had a wide selection of pumpkin varieties ranging in different colors and others covered in warts.

“People seem to love the pumpkins with all the warts,” said Gonzalez, “they were a highly requested item last year, so we made sure we had to make sure we ordered more.”

In addition to the great pumpkin hunt, children were invited to paint their pumpkins while parents browsed the number of craft and farm fresh food vendors for the day.
