Visitors can pick out a pumpkin or make a lasting memory from the multiple arts and crafts booths. Pony rides and a petting zoo add to the fall fun. Face painting can make costumes come alive. And pumpkin-patch wanderers can learn how to fish with Anglers United and experience a real-life tractor ride.  Vote for a favorite Superhero Scarecrow in the patch while enjoying food, drinks, candy and fun for the whole family.

The festival will continue today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission is $5/person. Ages 3 and under are admitted free.
