1New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival

The New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival is a festival known for its epic proportions, having broken the world record nine times since 1992 for the most lit jack-o’lanterns in one place at one time (30,581 in 2013).

The festival is an homage to all things pumpkin with popular events such as the annual 5k and 10k race, where orange gourds line the street course.
