LAURELVILLE – Year after Year Circleville Native Jack Pine has been creating a Circleville Pumpkin show exclusive pumpkin, this year is no different.
Jake Pine said that this pumpkin was created to, “bring back memories of growing up in a small village in Southern Ohio.”
“As a boy I remember crisp October air and dark auburn skies. Looking up and seeing the full flowing moon through the wind-blown naked trees. All the while wondering if the headless horseman was moving in the distance like Sleepy Hollow. Look closely into the copper ruby lens of the 2022 Pumpkin and you will find a hidden glowing moon of your own.”
Launching Friday, September 23 and running through Sunday, September 25, the Third Annual Glass Pumpkin Festival is open from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Parking is limited and festival-goers are encouraged car pool and reserve their spot for $5 at GlassPumpkinFestival.com, with each reservation receiving a $5 coupon towards their Jack Pine pumpkin purchase.
A highlight is the unveiling of Jack Pine’s annual Pumpkin of the Year, with the festival marking the first opportunity for fans of the legendary glass blower to snag the highly collectible, limited-edition glass pumpkin. The Glass Pumpkin Festival was launched by Jack Pine in 2020 during COVID to offer families a safe and beautiful escape centered around a stunning outdoor arts experience set in the magnificence of Ohio’s most visited location for fall foliage.
