The first ever Pumpkin Festival in downtown Rochester was a huge success. The event was started by a high school student. Gabriel Yeager came up with the idea and personally contacted each vendor, with some help. In just twenty minutes, the 300-pumpkin giveaway was already finished.
"A special thanks to Sekap Orchard for bringing down 800 pumpkins to the Rochester festival . I can see by next year we may double that number and make this a Rochester tradition," said Yeager.
Families could also enjoy food, crafts, and meet some of their favorite Disney characters.
