The Great Pumpkin #fxbgpumpkin, A Finale

It’s hard to believe it’s already November… unless you step outside in the chill, then reality strikes. We had a wonderful October with more 10696450_522360147907654_1652154621958408273_ngreat products coming in and lots of fun events! The downtown Trick Or Treating was a blast, we loved working with the kids at the park and handing out mini pumpkins and of course handing out our apple treats for the Trick or Treaters.

We had a wonderful end to The Great Pumpkin with twenty entries into the contest and some really great and fun pumpkin work. We are still working towards meeting our fundraising goal to support The Boys and Girls Club of Fredericksburg, so if you have a donation, please bring it by or donate by using our shop here.

The contest started on September 30th and ended at midnight on October 31st. Winners were chosen by Facebook, Instagram and Twitter likes, retweets and shares. When everything was said and done, there were over 500 likes for all the pumpkins entered into the contest, not a bad start! After tabulating totals here is the result:
