Members of the sponsor- ing Milton Chamber of Commerce and area business owners have already set the atmosphere along city streets. Light poles are costumed in corn stalks, and mums and other sea- sonal decorations line Union and Federal streets and fill storefront windows. The festival which is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., includes activities, games, arts and crafts booths and a variety of food. Milton Chamber President Ed Harris said that the festival should provide something entertaining for all ages. He said adults can com- pete in the pumpkin-carving con- test and children can vie for prizes in the pumpkin-painting contest. Little Miss Pumpkin will be crowned at 11:30 a.m. "We have several things for young children," Harris said. "And, we have a group of more than 30 Milton Middle School stu- dents who will help out with the games; they will be putting chil- dren on the Milton Clipper mini- train and guiding them through the hay maze. We wouldn't want any toddlers to get lost in the hay maze." Pauline Wilson, festival com- mittee chair, and committee mem- ber Phyllis Hammond have been collecting pumpkins from Bridgeville to Smyrna for decorat- ing and carving. Wilson said the fall fruits range in size from dain- ty, decorative sugar pumpkins to 100-pound blue-ribbon con- tenders. Hammond said that area grow- ers have been very generous in donating pumpkins for decora- tions and for the competitions. Those still in need of pumpkins to carve or decorate, may call the chamber office and check on the availability of free pumpkins.
