With summer in our rear view mirror our produce departments have turned their attention to fall and our fall items. We are busy preparing for our 18th Annual Pumpkin Blowout; this is my favorite event and also my favorite day of the year because I get to spend the day outside working and interacting with all our guests. Some years it is cold and rainy and other years I come home with a sunburn but every year is always exciting! It is great to see all the families enjoying themselves and watching the kids have so much fun with all the activities.

What can you expect this year during Pumpkin Blowout at Festival Foods?
You can expect to see 1000’s of beautiful pumpkins at each store, all grown in Wisconsin by local farmers. There will also be corn stalks, straw bales, mini pumpkins, gourds, pie pumpkins, white pumpkins, painted pumpkins and fall floral arrangements for sale.
We are not stopping at just pumpkins and decorations. We will also have free apple cider and lots of goodies from our Bakery. The kids can bounce in the free inflatables, play games and win fun prizes![caption id="attachment_4602" align="aligncenter" width="627"] Playing games in De Pere[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4603" align="aligncenter" width="638"] Cookies, caramel apples, and more from our Bakery[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4604" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Some locations will offer face painting[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4605" align="aligncenter" width="673"] Bins FULL of fantastic pumpkins and inflatables for the kids will be back again this year![/caption] You will find more details in our newspaper ad and on www.festfoods.com.
