Pumpkin Festival

On Saturday we went to Floydada for the Pumpkin Festival. The weather was perfect and felt just like fall; cool and wet.My favorite attraction at the festival was this miniature tractor that was used to churn homemade ice cream.

Just outside Floydada is a big red barn where people stop to buy pumpkins.

Stopping at the barn is so fun; they offer pumpkins is all shapes and sizes.

People use wagons and carts while shopping.

In front of the barn is a large grassy area set up for picture taking. This year it was too wet to walk to the wagon to take our picture but we had fun watching others wade through the water.

We purchased four small pie pumpkins to use for pumpkin bread. At 50-cents each they were a bargain!

50 cents IS a bargain! The store here wants to charge almost $4!
