CIRCLEVILLE -This year marks the 113th Circleville Pumpkin Show and the town is buzzing with preparation for the “Greatest Free Show on Earth!”
One of the many traditions to look forward to is crowning the Miss Pumpkin Show Queen, which has been a tradition for 85 years. The very first Miss Pumpkin Show Queen was 15 year old Lucille Heise, who was one of 6 contestants and was crowned on October 5, 1933. Heise was presented with a diamond ring as the victor.
The initial idea for the Miss Pumpkin Show Queen originated from Proctor Baughman who at the time was the director of Parades. This has since become one of the cherished traditions that take place during Wednesday of the Pumpkin Show.
This year we have 13 Miss Pumpkin Show contestants.
