It’s time for the annual Circleville Pumpkin Show. That means it’s time for pumpkin lovers everywhere to don their bright orange garb, gather in the shadow of the pumpkin colored water tower, dance the pumpkin jig around the pumpkin Christmas tree, eat every imaginable pumpkin-based food, and pay homage to people who somehow can grow gargantuan pumpkins that ultimately can tip the scales at more than 1,000 pounds.
If you’ve never been to the Circleville Pumpkin Show, this year would be a good place to start. It’s a classic bit of Americana, found just down the road from Columbus. This year’s celebration of pumpkinalia runs through Saturday, October 22.
