As fall is now upon us, the Pilger Pumpkin Festival is up and running this weekend. 

The festivities begin Saturday, September 24 at 2:00 pm and go on until dusk, with pumpkin weighing also beginning at 2. 

Admission to the festival is $15 for those 12 years and up, $5 for those 7 - 11 years of age, and 6 and under is free. 

“The admission includes your food and entertainment,” explained Blaine Federick with the festival. “We will have bouncy castles for kids, there are horse and wagon rides, a 50/50 draw, music and entertainment in the hall, and there is also a cash bar.”

It’s set to be an exciting weekend down in Pilger, with plenty to do.
