Annual Pumpkinfest Begins Friday in St. Joseph

Crews begin setting up for the 18th Annual Pony Express Pumpkinfest.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Pony Express Museum's annual Pumpkinfest kicks off tonight in St. Joseph, and crews began setting the stage for the big event on Thursday.

Vendors arrived for this weekend's festivities.

Dozens of pumpkins were already piling up on the Great Pumpkin Mountain.

Families can look forward to good, rides, entertainment, a parade, and of course - the lighting of Pumpkin Mountain.

The festival committee also included something new for kids to enjoy this year.

"We have a juggling. I've always wanted it. Kids say, 'can you juggle this, can you juggle that?' No, I can juggle jobs, maybe, and work, but not three objects in my hand. So, we have a guy who's going to come and do juggling on Saturday, and I really think that's fun," said Cindy Daffron, Pony Express Museum.

The 18th annual Pumpkinfest begins at 5 p.m. Friday and runs through Sunday, Oct. 13 at 5 p.m.

The lighting ceremony is set for Friday at 8 p.m.
