Great Pumpkin Festival in Festus canceled

(Festus) The annual Great Pumpkin Festival on Festus Main Street which is always held the Saturday before Halloween…..has been canceled this year. Chris Hagan with Metro Hallmark in Festus has been organizing the event for decades. He says the Covid-19 pandemic is certainly the reason to postpone the event this fall.

The Great Pumpkin Festival was scheduled to be held on October 24th but will return in 2021.
