And I mean it - the 19th Annual Milford Pumpkin Festival is a hit year after year, filling its town center with gourds of every color, shape and size.

There's pumpkin carving, pie eating, scarecrow making, and haunted trail screaming for everyone. A chili cook-off, yummiest pie contest, and face painting around every corner. With a local talent competition and lots of live music, the Pumpkin Festival in Milford Oct. 10-12 makes a perfect backdrop for a lazy weekend roaming the streets surrounding by gourds of fun. pump.jpg

The festival's highlight is one of New England's most sought-after professional magicians, the phenomenal Markus Almodarr Steelgrave, and his partner, Angelique, who have been wowing audiences for over 36 years. You don't want to miss this pumpkin-rich event.
