{{featured_button_text}}

Caledonia hosted thousands of visitors on Saturday for its annual pumpkin festival, christened this year in honor of Missouri's 200th birthday as the Caledonia Bicentennial Pumpkin Fest.

The morning parade featured marshal Nina Gilliam, owner of Village Mercantile, and contests were held for pumpkin pie eating, sack races, pumpkin throwing, pumpkin carving and decorating.

The air was filled with the smell of great food and the sound of local bands. Tons of activities were held for kids, shop owners welcomed the masses and vendors sold their wares and services.

Caledonia's boosters passed out information on more activities and events that are scheduled every weekend this fall. More information can be found on the village's Facebook page under "The Village of Caledonia Missouri."
