Here are some more pictures from the Great Pumpkinfest in Damariscotta. Such a fun event! I plan to go back next year, but maybe on the Tuesday after the actual fest. That way, the pumpkins will be complete but won’t have started to decay, and there won’t be as many people.
Now, an interlude with a flower, a beautiful rose that somehow managed to bloom in October. In Maine. It almost seems miraculous.
Back to pumpkins.
The end. Until next year.

So much fun!!
It really was.
I heard never heard about this event so thanks for sharing. I looked at Susan Branch’s blog and saw she was in Maine and also at this fun event. A small world since I found your blog through Susan Branch and both of you are the only blogs I follow!🍁🍂🍃🎃🎑🍎
Here’s something even more small worldish. I know the couple that Susan stayed with. In the 1990s, both Sharon and I belonged to a group called Maine Media Women. Pretty funny, huh? So glad you found me via Susan!
Wow, such creativity! My favorites are the squashed witch (a la Wylie Coyote), the terrified little pumpkin and the cute barnyard, which must have been a hit with toddlers. 🙂
Thank you for showing us all these.
You’re most welcome.
I, too, wait to view the pumpkins until after the fest is over. We mostly have to go through Damariscotta to get home, so I tend to stay away from town! Too much crazy traffic!
A wise decision. But what a lovely little town.
This is way too funny. You found some really creative folks – reminds me of the sandcastle artists. And, the rose is gorgeous. 🙂
It really is! Astonishing to find a bloom so fresh in October.
Yes – a stunning rose. And the pumpkins are amazing – what a sense of humor pervades! Love the creativity.
Me too! A very creative community.
I love to see what people come up with. Fun ideas! tThey are all amazing but the barnyard melts my heart.
Yes, that barnyard is so sweet.
So many different, amazing and funny pumpkin creations! I loved the squashed witch! The rose is perfection!
I know! That squashed witch is too funny. And that rose. In October.
Very well shot
These people know how to have fun with pumpkins! I think your idea of visiting after the crowds have moved on is a good one, though . . .
Simple pleasures! But a lot of work, as simple pleasures often are. 😉
Great day, great fun!
So much fun, so much creativity.
We love Damariscotta and go there often, but have always avoided Pumpkin Fest due to the crowds. So, I’m glad you shared. Maybe next year, we will follow your plan to go after the crowds are gone.
Those pumpkins are something else.
These are wonderful photos, Laurie! Thanks for sharing. I especially like The larger pumpkin about to eat the smaller one. 🙂
Thanks, Lavinia! Poor little fellow.
Some very funny pumpkins there – loved the pigs in the farmyard.
I know! So sweet.
Wonderful photos and I really enjoyed the pumpkinfest, especially the last two shots and the stylish black and white pumpkins.🙂
Such a fun fest.
So creative and fun!
