The Quirky South Carolina Town That Transforms Into A Pumpkin Wonderland Every Fall

Whether fall makes you think of candied apples, apple cider and donuts, pumpkin-spiced lattes or just the notion of cooler weather, the season is also known for all of the festivities it ushers in to small communities around the state. This year marks the 40th annual Pumpkintown Pumpkin Festival, and you’ll want to clear your calendar for this Saturday, October 13, 2018, so you can get in on the fun!
