Keene NH PumpkinFest 2013 (Frank Zappa, City of T…:
I went to the Keene Pumpkin Festival last year. It really wasn’t what I was expecting, outside of the thousands of pumpkins part. I was kind of expecting that. But for some reason I was expecting a truly painful foodfight. That didn’t happen. Instead I got a ferris wheel, reasonable souvenir prices, a nice crowd, and helpful cops. When the count was done all of the pumpkins that weren’t claimed were thrown into dumpsters for that purpose by a couple hundred volunteers. What went wrong this year? Was it the Free Staters? Had the pumpkins fermented? Was it that Mercury Retrograde thing? Probably.
