The second last photo, the red fruits, are they pomegranates? Just read a short news that US federal regulators have filed complaints against the makers of POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice, saying there's no science to support claims that the products treat or prevent diseases such as prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction.

What a lovely festival. First time I hear of a pumpkin festival and of a pumpkin cheesecake. It all looks so bright and cheerful. AND sunny! Glad someone is looking out for the mistreated racing dogs. Thanks for your visits to my blog. I've had a rather busy week and trying to catch up on blog visits and commnents. I have a link on my post tomorrow to a new blog. If you have a chance, do pop over and check it out. Have a great day, my friend. Greetings from Jo

I all looks lovely and a lot of fun. The farmers have gone to a lot of trouble to give you some knowledge all they produce.

Our pumpkin season is focused on the end of October with Halloween. Do you carve Jack-o-Lanterns?

I love pumpkin pie. We also enjoy roasting the seeds in the over with salt on them.A great treat.

What a nice event! I whish we could have something similar here, considering how much the pumpkins are used in our dishes! Thanks for sharing.
