This year will be the 37th annual Pumpkin Festival in Milton. The park expects to have thousands of visitors over the duration of the festival. The festival was created to help farmers sell pumpkins and to celebrate the beginning of autumn. 

There will be 22 different food vendors, art exhibitions, crafts, workshops, glassblowing demonstrations, pumpkin competitions, and a petting zoo. 

The four-day festival ends Sunday. It starts everyday at 9 a.m. and runs until 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. On Sunday it closes at 6 p.m. 

Visitors should take into account heavy traffic around the festival in travel plans.
