With more than 75,000 attendees, The Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival of 2012 gained national attention as the subject of HGTV’s "Pumpkin Wars."

While Highwood didn't break the World Record for most carved and lit jack-o-lanterns due to wind issues, the residents pre-scooped over 32,000 pumpkins, built a friendly rivalry with Keene, NH and gained bragging rights to the World Records for longest line of pumpkin pies and attempting most people carving simultaneously.

Once again, the 2013 festival will be packed with daily events, vendors galore, live music, hay rides, pumpkin carving, massive pumpkin displays, nightly lightings, a parade, 5K/10K Pumpkin Run and so much more!
