18th Annual Elyria Pumpkin Festival

The community of Elyria would like to invite you to the 18th Annual Elyria Pumpkin Festival on Sunday, October 3.  Pumpkin decorating contests, kids’ games, and craft shows, are only part of what you will experience.  Chairperson, Sharon Iwanski, sometimes called the “Pumpkin Queen,” describes the celebration as a true community event, “Nearly every person affiliated with the Village of Elyria helps in one way or another.  I even have people who formerly lived around Elyria come back to help with various projects.  I can’t say enough good things about everyone’s willingness to always pitch in and help in whatever capacity I need.” 

The annual pumpkin decorating contest will be availabe for children.  The age groups are ages 6 and under, ages 7-10, and ages 11-13.  Adults can join in the fun by guessing the weight of pumpkins for a chance to win great door prizes.  A luncheon of chicken noodle soup, chicken salad or ham sandwiches, hot dogs, chilidogs, and chips will be served from 11 am to 4 pm.  And don’t forget the famous free slice of pumpkin pie!!!
