The main event was the pumpkin smashing...yep, you heard that right. People brought their old jack-o-lanterns, and the crew at the festival brought a bunch of them up onto a crane, and dropped them from enormous heights onto a wooden table, where they exploded in a gleeful mist of pumpkin guts and water.
I had fun for the little bit of time we were there, and Dad really enjoyed it, but it was too much for me...
Later, I went through the map (which I was obviously in charge of, as seen below) with Mom, and showed her all the things I couldn't go see because of how cold it was...ah well, we'll try again next year!
Maybe on a warmer day. :-/
