Posted

Pumpkins are ripe for the picking at Taos Goji Farm in San Cristóbal.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday (Oct.19-20), the public is welcome to the annual pumpkin festival. Thousands of pumpkins were grown this season after Goji Farms had to take a year off from growing them due to drought conditions.

This year's event will have music, food carts and pumpkin picking for the community. Admission is free, and pumpkins are 50 cents per pound.

Veterans assistance Not Forgotten Outreach will also be holding their fall festival from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 19) at their Corral No.5 location on Paseo del Pueblo Norte, across from Cid's. Not Forgotten will be offering face painting, a pumpkin patch and games for the public during their fest. In addition, the group will be serving roasted corn and pork raised from the agricultural program at the site.

A pumpkin-carving contest will also be held for those looking at additional fall festival activities. Admission is free to the public.
