Hunsader Farms Pumpkin Festival is the epitome of ... pumpkins. Yes. Definitely. But looking around the huge celebration one can discover other vignettes that suggest something completely apart from apple cider, knee-slapping music and the bellyaches of too many tasty treats.
Under a big top, a lady flew through the air in a fanciful costume as performers ran back and forth to RVs to change costumes. Beside the big top was the ever-popular corn maze with the shouts of children emanating from the thick green plants as they made their way through the life-sized puzzle.
One last glance back at the field before turning away revealed a young lady with a bright parasol entering the maze. For a moment, the shouts died down and the only sound was the wind blowing through the leaves as she was visible for an instant before disappearing into the corn.
