Floydada Punkin Day A Success!

Dispite the wet weather this week and even rain on Saturday, Floydada's Annual Punkin Festival went on without a hitch.

The pumpkin crops were a muddy mess just two days ago in 'Pumpkin Capital U.S.A'. After 15 days of consistent rain, 12 to 14 hundred acres of crops were grounded in mud.  This made the harvest a race against time.

Fortuately, Saturday's Punkin Festival went on as planned. Complete with a pumpkin decorating contest, food, arts and crafts, games, a motorcycle run and lots of music.

"We've had like over 3,000 people here today, it's been an awesome weather, great guests, everyting has just gone wonderful," said Iantha Smith, Director of the Floydada Chamber of Commerce.

Each year the festival brings in about 3,000 visitors, which is almost double the town's population.
