Last year our city of Laconia was honored to host the 25th Annual New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival (previously held in Keene). As we watched the hustle and bustle of our neighbors and community members collecting and carving pumpkins, we just knew we had to be a part of the fun. So, we hosted our very first Tiny Pumpkin contest!
On the day of the Pumpkin Festival, the streets outside our door were lined with glowing pumpkins and gleeful passersby bundled up against the autumn cold. Inside Sunflower, we snuggled in with our hot pumpkin spice coffee (FREE for all of our visitors!) and carefully judged the pumpkins pictured above to determine which was the very smallest. Now as autumn teases us, we are already chomping at the bit to celebrate Pumpkin Festival again this year with our Tiny Pumpkin Contest, part 2! Here are the details of the event:
Even if you don't submit a pumpkin, we would love to see you during the New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival! Our store will be open 9 am - 4 pm that day and we'll have free pumpkin treats and hot drinks to share with all of our visitors. Plus, you won't want to miss Pumpkinfest's tiniest pumpkins, do you?
Health & happiness,
