Pumpkin Festival

The March to Circleville

By: Hunter Miller

Five senior band members: Cody Barth, Colin Ash, Madison 
Graham, Alexa Franklin, Kim Laferty, Cody Lester, and
Rachel Redolf.
On Saturday, October 19th, the Marching Royals took a trip to the Circleville Pumpkin Festival to march in the parade. The Circleville Pumpkin Festival is an event that takes place every year during the month of October. The festival has many different activities for people of all ages like Miss Pumpkin and Little Miss Pumpkin shows, parades, arts and crafts and many others. The Royals have made it a tradition to attend this event for many years, and it does not seem like it will end anytime soon. Rain and chilly temperatures made the event less than pleasurable. Junior band member, Brydan Lohr, said, “The rain stopped when we were about halfway there, but it was still a chilly event.” However, the Ohio State football game was still at the top of his priority list. This is the last time that the seven seniors in the marching band will attend this event as a Royal, so while there they had an opportunity to pose for some photos in the lineup for the parade. The Pumpkin Festival is something that these seven seniors have looked forward to every year they have been in band. I am sure they will miss the experience and performing in front of this large crowd. The Circleville Pumpkin Festival has left the seniors with a few memories to look back upon, and it may make them want to visit the festival in the future.
