Last weekend, a lot of families with their kids celebrated the Rocky Mount State Historic Park’s Harvest Festival.

This was the first year for the Pumpkin Wars, a contest to see who could carve the best pumpkin.

They also had kids activities including kids cooking specialty foods with the help of adults, food trucks, and vendors making and selling apple butter.

For Halloween, there is an upcoming event called “Haunting on the Mount,” which begins on October 16, 2021.

Tickets are sold at $16 per person.
