YouTube video by Deanna taken Sunday at the circus,
in Manchester, NH.

This is the Chinese National Acrobatic Troupe
trying to break a World record.
Jumping through a hoop 10′ off the ground. Cool.

This is BAD!

It is all over National news.

It will be a major setback to what was a hugely successful event.

I am GLAD we couldn’t make it this year because of Devanee’s cross-country State meet. The campus is right there. This would not have been funny for anyone, especially not if you had small children.

This is a shame. Somebody is trying to harm this Festival. I am not happy. I like OUR Pumpkin Festival.


Sunday Morning Update.

Weird and upsetting to hear about the riots on National TV this morning. I am not amused.

This is inexcusable. This is crazy.

WMUR coverage, inimitably and as many of us have grown used to expecting, is patchy, stale and non-incisive.

The “Keene Sentinel“, below, thankfully has much better coverage.

Appears that pumpkin count was WAY DOWN. Just 21,912! That is not good. 72% of the number they had last year. So despite the claim that the Festival went on, unscatched, that was NOT obviously the case. Having been to the Festival I know that the College is right there.

From WMUR. Click to access WMUR. Google for coverage from across the country. Nothing about the world record. Just the riots.

There are going to try for another World record.

Hope the weather cooperates. Doesn’t look great, BUT it might not be too bad. At least it is not cold.

We were there last year and had a ball. It was our first time there. I even made it to the HGTV Special!

We plan to go again this year. On Saturday I even signed up to volunteer. Not sure whether they will have me. I might be too overqualified. But, we will still go.

I am hoping to meet with our #1 Golden breeder who lives nearby in Surry. We actually dropped in on them last year without warning, in the afternoon. This year we will tell them in advance.

So just a heads-up. Mark it on your calendar. It is free. It is a lot of fun. Food prices etc. (at least last year) were extremely reasonable. So a good, fun family day out in the fall. Just hope the weather is half as good as it was last year.
