The pumpkin festival at Sinkland Farms in Riner, VA, opened this past weekend.
It's a great way to spend an hour or so on a fall weekend.
There are many, many pumpkins waiting to be found in the fields.
Or you can pick out one that's already been picked.
That is, if you can make up your mind about which one you want.
There are weird gourds to look at.
Some pumpkins just want to be sat on.
There are friendly animals in the barn waiting to see you and be petted.
Some of the animals are really, really big.
And there were musicians and kettle corn, pony rides and ice cream, tractors and a corn maze. We'll be visiting again next weekend, I'm sure.
