What To Expect

Last year they had everything from a pie eating contest (won by a kid, no surprise) and a pumpkin carving contest for children teens, and adults. Halloween is always an exciting time in Southwest Michigan, and this is only the first of what can be expected as many events to take place in the area.
The host site for Pumpkinfest, the Leila Arboretum is an 85-acre park open from dawn to dusk that features the Fantasy Forest Sculpture Garden, 18 Hole Disc Golf Course, seasonal Kaleidoscope Garden, and 365 Farm Stand, and champion tree collections and perennial gardens.
Last year they had food trucks present on site, so it's to be expected that at least one food vendor will be on site this year to provide food and beverages.
