October is a pretty splendid month, featuring not one but two major holidays. And as the great pumpkin features prominently in both Thanksgiving and Halloween, it makes sense to honour it with a slew of pumpkin and fall festivals. They're a ton of fun for kids young and old with mazes, crafts, delicious food and the odd pumpkin canon. Plus, the colours of fall make for beautiful photos that the grandparents are clamouring to see. So pick a day, pick a pumpkin, and get ready for an outing full of food, activities and entertainment.
