TURNERS FALLS, Mass. (WWLP) - 22News took a trip to Franklin County, where the quiet community of Turners Falls was bustling with people in spirit of the season.
This year's Franklin County Pumpkinfest had something for everybody, with free pumpkin carving and lantern making for the kids, and live music and beer for the adults.
Some of the highlights of the Pumpkinfest included fire dancing, and a sky lantern send off.
“There's one person who was so clever he made a mummy pumpkin,” said Kathleen Carr of Montague. “He carved the pumpkin in pieces and then reassembled it. It looked like a mummy.”
“It's pretty and people come for the fun and the fresh air and to see friends you haven't seen in a while, and it's just a great time,” said Louise Sauter of Turners Falls.
Families at the Pumpkinfest told 22News, they'll be back next year.
Every fall season, Franklin County comes alive with tourists looking to view the picturesque landscape and fall foliage, which this year, has been outstanding.
