With Halloween just a few weeks away, it's time to start thinking about pumpkin carving!

Funnily enough, pumpkins just like bananas; they will continue to ripen after you bring them home. So pick one that's a lighter orange now, and it'll be perfect for the holiday! Word to the wise: pick a pumpkin you can lift easily and always lift with your knees. Take it from someone who was re-taught that lesson the hard way.

This weekend, you'll have the prime opportunity to pick your pumpkin. DeWitt's Great Pumpkin Festival is going down this Saturday, and you can do even more than just pick your jack-o-lantern pumpkin.

According to their website, the festival will have pumpkin derby car races, food, games, crafts, pumpkin painting, a scarecrow decorating and a ton more. There's going to be something for every age group.

You can check out the full list of events and all the details here!
