Pumpkinville

Those who worried the City’s annual fall-themed celebration might not return in 2020 need not fret; Pumpkinville will return in October with some notable changes. The event will move from its traditional Happy Rolph’s location and won’t feature its usual vendors, bouncy castles, animals, free pumpkins and pumpkin decorating contest. There is still plenty of fall fun in store, however.
