One of my favorite events of the year is the Fishhawk Fall Festival held in Park Square of the massive Fishhawk development in south Hillsborough County.

We went last year for the first time, and while it was a charming event, it was nothing like this year's gathering. There were thousands of people in attendance. There was a great 'fro-wearing disco band belting out the tunes, and lots of games and activities for the kids.

Racks of gourds

The highlight is the lighting of the giant assembly of pumpkins that line the park perimeter. Near the back of the park is a riser with racks and racks of carved gourds. Every one of them is different.

This year, thousands of people packed the park and carved pumpkins, most of which were lit from inside with tiny white lights.
