West van pumpkin festIt was time to celebrate the harvest last week as the West Vancouver Community Centres Society held their annual Pumpkin Fest at the West Van Recreation Centre. Held over two days, this ultimate family event included fun displays, games, races, live entertainment and more. Contests for best jams, jellies, pumpkins, scarecrows and more were also part of the mix and on Sunday, awards were handed out for best in show. Still, no one left empty handed as everyone who participated went home with a chocolate medal for their efforts. Congrats to everyone involved.
