WEEKLY WINNERS - PUMPKIN FEAST

For the Weekly Winners I take you to the Pumpkin feast which is celebrated this weekend near my town Waterloo.

It was in the middle of an area where you would never expect large fields. When I stopped at the address which I had got from a friend, I first saw nothing but a little farer was this lovely farm house.

There later drinks should be served








and then I saw it ! it was a huge field



with tables and seats for the guests !


All varieties of pumpkins were present !






My friends are walking amongst the pumpkins, they want to buy some to make a nice soup.

What a nice pumpkin fest!
I really love to admire all the different pumpkins from the big oranges ones to the little white with different forms! Je sors peu le dimanche pour soutenir Mélissa moralement et l'aider au cas où! Elle est en 1ère littéraire avec anglais renforcé tout ça pour rester avec ses meilleures amies alors qu'elle est dysléxique! Mais elle se donne tant de mal pour rester dans la course!!! Enfin pendant les vacances d'octobre je lui ai promis de l'emmener visiter le château de Versaille car elle doit faire son TPE sur Marie Antoinette! J'aurai alors matière à raconter!

Super photos of the pumpkin fest Gattina. I would be looking for the biggest. But not for soup. LOL

Enjoyed these photos. A lot!

So what did all the people DO when they were seated at all those tables? Were they carving pumpkins? Or painting them? Or were their delicious pumpkin treats being served? What happens at your Pumpkin Feast?
