ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Lockwood Park’s annual pumpkin fest got an update this year.
The pumpkin fest still had all things pumpkin, with people picking their pumpkin, to painting and decorating them.
Kids even got to use their pumpkin to play a game of tick-tac-toe or as a bowling ball.
The farm animals sat in their pens waiting for families to give them a scratch or some treats.
But all of that was at the fest last year too, the new additions came in form of food.
“We have food truck vendors which is really cool because there’s a little something for everyone with your taste-buds here at Pumpkin Fest,” said Superintendent of Operations, Rockford Park District, Lourie Anderson. “We have Prarie Street Brewhouse out here for the moms and dads who like a good ale out here during the fall.”
If you missed Pumpkin Fest on Sunday, don’t worry, it’s open again Monday from 10 to 5 p.m.
