The West Virginia Pumpkin Festival is under way in Milton.
It is the 28th year for the event and, as always, you can sample all sorts of pumpkin-flavored foods, like ice cream, fudge, doughnuts, popcorn, coffee and pumpkin pie.
There are also hundreds of arts and crafts vendors showing off their handiwork.
Elementary students from around the Tri-State will be taking field trips to the festival on Thursday and Friday, decorating pumpkins with their friends and family.
"The kids are just going wild,” festival president Bill Kelley said. “That's what it's about. It was started for kids to experience a good clean atmosphere and family fun."
The pumpkin festival runs from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
