What a crazy event the Nordic Pumpkin Hunt was! We showed up a 1/2 hr late, not intentionally, but life is how it is, and we were turned away from the pumpkin hunt – although, there were other things we could have waited in long lines for. We decided to have our own pumpkin hunt and snacks at home instead. Honestly, I’m not complaining but I am shocked at how popular this event is. 320 pumpkins sold in 30 minutes. WOWZERS. That’s amazing! I’m so happy for the Nordic Society for organizing an event that everyone loves and wants to be part of.
Also, record turn out for the municipal election this fall. 60% of the eligible voters came out to the polls. Amazing.
What an amazing town we live in.
