Clarence - The fall season is full swing in Clarence, N.Y. An annual event, The Great Pumpkin Farm festival attracted many people over the three-day Columbus Day weekend.
Located in the Buffalo, N.Y. suburbs, The Great Pumpkin fall festival appears to be a popular event. I happened to be visiting the region over the holiday and we'd decided to check it out.
The farm refers to itself as the "largest family event in the region", and there did prove to be many events and goings-on throughout the day including a variety of foods, contests, rides, games, crafts, entertainment and more, with primarily fall-themed activities of course.

What's a fall festival without Halloween features? In the "Pumpkin Palace" visitors could take a break and buy a treat from the bakery or peruse the decorations in the Halloween Store. Also, on the grounds was a "Boo Barn" which is advertised as "more fun than scary".
