“Hey family, it’s the Great Morton Pumpkin Festival!”
I always think about the animated series “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” whenever this upcoming festival comes to town.
As the fall season is approaching, what other way to say so long to the summer and start off welcoming the fall with the Morton Pumpkin Festival.
The festivities start on today and will continue on through Saturday night in Morton, IL.
