The Great Pumpkin Festival
Washington Square in Oswego is the place to be on the first week of October.
Farmers from all over the Oswego area come to weigh their pumpkins to see if they can win the coveted "Greatest Pumpkin" award. To help draw the crowds, the city provides live concerts for entertainment; the streets and parking lots are lined with arts-and-crafts tents. Kids can buy and carve/decorate pumpkins; adults can try their hand at making the best carved pumpkin and possibly winning a prize. The Farmers' Market provides a sampling of their wares for purchase; spooky stories are told by people from the Historical Society. There is always plenty of food and drink.
So, plan to drop into Oswego in early October and have a great time.
