Celebrating all things autumn
HILLSDALE — The town of Hillsdale was recently overtaken by the autumn spirit as community members and weekend travelers participated in the ninth annual Pumpkin Festival on Saturday, Oct. 10.
Running from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the festival was spread throughout the local business community and Hamlet Park, at the corner of routes 22 and 23.
From the “Gathering of Scarecrows” and other seasonal displays to the pumpkin painting, community tables, police and sheriff’s department exhibits and more, spectators of all ages savored the sights, sounds and tastes of fall, all while abiding by the proper safety precautions during today’s coronavirus pandemic.
