A little more info on Pumpkin Fest 2012: After breaking the Guinness World Record in 2011 by carving and lighting 30,919 pumpkins, the City is back at it again! Highwood's third annual three-day festival, held on October 18-20, 2012, will bring over 60,000 people together from across the country to share in a wonderful community experience. The free event offers pumpkin carving, a 5K Pumpkin Run and Kids’ Dash, a Pumpkin Land Regatta, a Pumpkin Parade, live music, artisan foods with pumpkin flair, children’s activities, and so much more. Walls of jack-o-lanterns, up to 30 feet high, line the streets of downtown Highwood. The family fun festivities offer plenty of opportunities for people to come together, carve pumpkins and place them on one of the Great Pumpkin Walls for display, and then take them back home after the record breaking attempt on Saturday, October 20 is completed.
