Circleville Council on Preview Night of Pumpkin Show

Tuesday evening, Circleville Council had little to do, with a light agenda...but get out into the Pumpkin Show during "preview night" for residents.

.

While the mayor of Circleville is the "President" of the festival, that is mainly ceremonial.

.

Councilman Barry Keller is the "Vice President," meaning he is the real coordinator. He explained all the work it takes to put it on - guiding more than 250 volunteers, and several city departments.

He says Pumpkin Show Park has been completed, and is the central site for free music and other events.

.

Keller urges everyone to try something pumpkin-flavored to support local nonprofits...to visit the seven parades...and to buy souvenirs like "Looking for Pumpkin Man," a book by the city's elementary school children.

.

400,000 to 500,000 people may attend the four-day festival. Then, there's a major cleanup Sunday...and it's like it never happened.
