DeWitt's Great Pumpkin Festival

DEWITT, Iowa (KWQC) - DeWitt held its third annual "Great Pumpkin Festival" early Sunday afternoon.

It featured fun events including pumpkin derby car races, pumpkin painting and pumpkin bowling. The festival was organized by the Marketers of DeWitt Group, but they say it's a community effort.

"We have volunteers from just businesses in town and organizations," Mary Stevenson said. "The FFA chapter here in DeWitt, just the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts, they're all helping out as well."

The Marketers of DeWitt organization hosts many events throughout the year. Their next event is in March and is called, "The Leprechaun Leap."
