If you have been missing the idea of getting out and enjoying fall events around the Texas panhandle, there is one event that you must check out. PumpkinFest with the Amarillo Botanical Gardens is coming up on Saturday, October 3, from 10am to 2pm. The event is for the entire family and will be set up as a vintage style carnival.

There will be twenty games with prizes, including kid's games for ages pre-school through elementary school. You will also be able to enjoy a cupcake walk as well as educational crafts.

There will be vendor booths, a professional photo set, food, drinks and cotton candy served all inside the Amarillo Botanical Gardens.
