Put on your PumpkinFest face – Havana pumped for PumpkinFest

Pumpkinfest is poised to rock Havana for the 20th time this weekend, and organizers say there’s still plenty of fresh fun and surprises to discover this year at the annual downtown family soiree. 

The popular yearly festival gets underway in the morning, this Saturday, October 12, with booths, games, rides and entertainment occupying nearly the entirety of Havana’s downtown streetscape. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for kids.

Havana Main Street, the local nonprofit behind the annual festival, will host a beer and wine garden from noon until 6 p.m., and acclaimed southern rockers the Keith Taylor Band will rock the stage from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., as part of a free concert sponsored by Coastal Plywood and Florida Cultural Affairs. 

Making a triumphant return are annual favorites like the Kellum’s pumpkin patch, kid’s petting zoo, hayride, games and myriad artisan ware- and food-vendors, as well as some new surprises, organizers say.
