We have never been to the Keene Pumpkin Festival, though each time we have seen it on TV we have talked about making the trek.
Keene is about as far as you can get from here, while still staying within NH. That said, we do go to Keene given that our favorite dog breeder, Goldens, of course, is in Surry (just north of Keene). They introduced us to a decent Indian restaurant at the Keene airport.
This year, the New Hampshire Granite State Ambassadors (GSA) are helping out at the festival. Since I am very remiss in the hours I put in, I decided to volunteer here and basically smash two pumpkins with one stone. It looks like great fun and I will be putting in some much needed hours.
We are all going. Entrance is FREE.
Their Website is good, and already has a schedule, a map, parking, list of vendors etc. So go check it out. We have to be there by noon. I will be brown, as usual, and wearing a green GSA shirt. Come and say ‘hello‘. So, see you there. Cheers.
