Dormitz Kurbisfest (Pumpkin Festival)

The little one and I went to a Pumpkin Festival in a nearby village, Dormitz. The big one was working on college applications and the hubby was working.

They had yummy pumpkin items like Pumpkin Soup, Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Marmalade, Pumpkin Chutney, etc.

Also there was a horse (pony?)-drawn wagon ride.

and more gourds...

A display of antique motor-cycles...

...and tractors.

We bought a bunch of little gourds and one big pumpkin. Lucky for us a guy volunteered out of the blue to carry it the car where we had parked around the corner!

Did not buy the Pumpkritter.

Now I am homesick for Amish country in NE Ohio in the fall. The wife makes it easier by making great pumpkin pies from scratch. She uses the Japanese type (Hokkaido, I think) but it tastes the same to me. All that without canned pumpkin pie filling or mixed pumpkin pie spice.

Your photos look appealing and I bet you really enjoyed the day, especially since you didn't need to schlepp your pumpkins/squash.
