West Vancouver’s annual Pumpkinfest scored big this weekend as the sun shone down on everyone at the West Vancouver Rec Centre. It was a true family fun weekend complete with contests and displays and a Saturday night dance for the adults. There was music, food, kids’ activities, a scarecrow contest and, of course, the pumpkin patch. Sunday afternoon the awards were handed out to those who participated. A big congrats to all the volunteers who helped lift more than a bale or two to help make it all happen.

Located inside of Marilyn’s boutique, the pair celebrated with a cocktail party for all the well-heeled.
