The event included a wide variety of activities including: Craft/Vendor Fair 9:00 am – 4:00 pm; Children’s Activities; Baggo Tournament; 50/50 Raffle; Sample a Variety of Pumpkin Beer/Other Beer Available; Pumpkin Carving Contest; Salem Idol Contest and Bake Sale & Food .

The evening concluded with a Barn Dance featuring local artists Tim Castle & Young Southern.

Here are some more photos from the event by freelacne photographer Earlene Frederick:

There were several kids games to play — and a lot of kids to play them — at Pumpkindaze. /Earlene Frederick photo

The weather was nice, but if it had not been, the town had the capacity to move activities into the large spaces in the Fire Station/Highway Building. The craft and vendor fair show here was set-up inside regardless. /Earlene Frederick photo

The SAFETY-VESTers and the PUMPKIN SHIRTers ESPECIALLY… as anyone who entertains knows, the event is still occurring with the take-down, put-away, clean-up, make-it-like-it-was efforts all at the same time as keeping the regluar daily life moving along smoothly!
