Here’s a festival that grows bigger each year. Girard harvested 400 pumpkins for this Saturday’s fest held on the town square. Go on a hay or pony ride, enter the pumpkin painting or carving contest, smash a car, see the winning pet or child costume and so much more. The air/human/mechanical powered pumpkin chunkin contest takes place at 1 p.m. Watch pre-registered participants throw pumpkins from apparatuses they have made to see who can fling the greatest distance at the Girard Landfill, located at the southeastern edge of town, just off Route 4. The cost to watch is $1. For detailed event times and descriptions visit www.il66assoc.org.
