The 3rd Annual Pumpkin & Pickle Festival Returns to The Cottage in West Daviess County. Want to try a pickle sicle? fried pickles? pickle beer? Maybe pumpkin cheesecake muffins are more your style. Over 100 vendors, live music, food trucks, family fun on the farm and so much more!
Illinois is without a doubt the king of pumpkin production, but one place in Illinois is responsible for our state having that title, and that's the town of Morton, Illinois, where they call their home the "Pumpkin Capital Of The World."
Happy September! Have you had your first pumpkin spice latte yet? Went to a pumpkin patch? Floated in a pumpkin down a river? Wait, that last one? That happened, and a new world record was set in the process.
Sure, our state certainly takes its share of slings and arrows for ongoing problems like political corruption, pension problems, high taxes, and a population that continues to shrink, but you have to give us our props when it comes to pumpkins.
