In my quest to attend more local-ish events (seriously, why didn’t I make this my New Year’s Resolution instead of going to bed earlier?), I recently went to the Circleville Pumpkin Show. Circleville is about 45 minutes or so outside of Columbus, so not too far. Think of it as a fair or carnival type setting where everything revolves around pumpkins. And the food? ALL PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! Seriously, it was spectacular! I used to go as a very young child, with my family, but my friend Shannen and I went this year and we were not disappointed!

So check out some of the sights from our trip. I ate pumpkin flavored foods until I could eats no more! And then I took a pumpkin brownie home for later! I will be going back next year for more!

My only gripe was that the show runs Wednesday through Saturday. That’s nice for the really local folks, but I just don’t understand why Sunday isn’t included. Folks who work during the week only have 1 day to try and visit. And if they’re obsessed with football (like I am), the trip will come after the game is over. Small window. Work with us. We live in the heart of Buckeye Nation. Just something to think about…
