The Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival returns October 13 and 14, 2012 which has become a family fun event for the last 21 years.
As always, Hartsburg will be filled with outstanding arts and crafts, musical entertainment, Halloween decorations and tens of thousands of pumpkins where in true Halloween spirit the festival features pumpkin carving, pumpkin pie eating competitions, hayrides in the pumpkin patch, pumpkin painting, apple butter making and a straw maze.
Pumpkin baked goods can be sampled at the Hartsburg Café and a Pumpkin Festival Cookbook will be available for purchase during the event. At 6:00 pm on Saturday, the spectacular Missouri River Bluffs covered with trees in full autumn bloom, will serve as a backdrop for the Missouri Tourism hot air balloon as it launches from the Pumpkin Patch.
The Pumpkin Festival, sponsored by the Hartsburg Bike and Social Club, is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
