Giant pumpkins, free family activities and entertainment celebrate the fall season at the festival, presented by the City of Kenosha and Blackhawk Community Credit Union. Wisconsin Giant Pumpkin Growers will host a weigh-off, with prize money for the largest pumpkin. Last year’s state champion pumpkin weighed more than 2,100 pounds.
D.J. Jamie Watkins will provide music, and the Mayor's Youth Commission has games and prizes for kids. The first 200 children to arrive will receive a small pumpkin. Free face painting from Kenosha Art Association members.
