The founder of the festival, Nancy Sporborg, literally wrote the book on Keene Pumpkin Festival’s 25 years. She is pictured above in her office holding her book high, pledging ALL proceeds to the 2017 festival.
The 2018 Keene Pumpkin Festival harkens back to 1993 when 4,817 pumpkins filled downtown and a second world record was set for the most twinkling jack-o’-lanterns in one place at one time. Central Square will look like it did for decades—full of school children’s pumpkins. (This photo was taken by Mickey Pullen in 2010)
