Welcome To The 54 th Annual Barnesville Pumpkin Festival The officers and committee members are excited to welcome you to the 2017 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. We are proud to be celebrating 54 years of this festival and invite you to join us Thursday, September 21 through Sunday, September 24 for contests, delicious foods, giant pumpkins, horticultural displays, arts, crafts,

well over 100 vendors providing concessions, rides and harvest-inspired arts and crafts, antiques and more. Local organizations and churches offer a variety of homestyle foods. Entertainment and contests take place on two stages, the Central Stage on Main St. and the Pumpkin Stage on S. Chestnut St. With a variety of fun con-

parade, car show and a super lineup of musical entertainment. Our committee of volunteers works hard each year to make each festival better than the one before. The Pumpkin Festival began in 1964 as a small street festival founded in the basement of the Catholic Church. Things have changed considerably since the earlier festivals. We have

tests for both adults and children, a weigh-in of champion pumpkins, a giant pumpkin parade on Saturday, an antique and classic car show on Sunday – there is plenty to see and do and, best of all, admission remains FREE. Our musical acts this year include, The Shumans, the Sarah Hays Band, the New Silver Eagle Band, the Voices of Ohio, Placebo

Jones, One-A-Chord, Easy Street, Lock 17, Little Creek, Cabin Boys and many more. The Barnesville Pumpkin Festival has become a tradition for families and friends, many who travel long distances to come each year to enjoy one of Ohio’s most popular festivals. We are very happy to have you visit and hope you have a most enjoyable and memorable time. Please visit our Information Booth during the festival, located at the corner of Main & Chestnut Streets, where we will answer any questions, guide you to various events or supply you with souvenirs. See you at the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival!

Wednesday Night Weigh-In of Giant Pumpkins $2 Per Pound Paid For The King Pumpkin!

Everyone gathers around downtown for the Wednesday night Giant Pumpkin Weigh-in to see who will tip the scales the most. Wednesday night is considered the unofficial start of the Festival, prior to the arrival of many out-of-town visitors. From 6-9pm on September 20, a parade of trucks and trailers carrying huge

pumpkins get in line to face the scales. This is surely one of the most popular events for the local townspeople as neighbors and friends visit and wait to see who will have this year’s King Pumpkin. The 2016 King Pumpkin was grown by Todd and Donna Skinner of Barnesville, OH. and weighed 1,739 pounds. We would like to thank Ohio Valley Scale in Valley Grove, WV, for donating the large scales to accommodate the ever-increasing size of gigantic pumpkins and Braido Memorials for sponsoring the pumpkin lift that assists the committee in weighing the big pumpkins. We would also like to give a special thanks to Louisiana Grill who is a major sponsor of the prize money for the King and other placing pumpkins. King Pumpkin entries are the only ones accepted on Wednes-

Winner of the largest “locally-grown” pumpkin receives $100. “Locally-grown” is defined as any exhibit grown in Belmont, Guernsey, Harrison, Jefferson, Monroe and Noble counties. Second largest overall receives $800, third $500, fourth - $300, fifth - $200, sixth -$150 and 7th through 10th place each receive $100.

KING PUMPKIN ON AUCTION BLOCK SATURDAY One of the most exciting events of the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival is the auctioning off of the King Pumpkin. This year should be even more exciting with the possibility of another record-breaking pumpkin weight. The excitement of King Pumpkin auction time always builds Saturday afternoon after the completion of the Giant Pumpkin Parade when local auctioneer, Richard Pryor, cranks it up with his sales call from the King Pumpkin Area. Pryor donates his time each year to sell the King Pumpkin as thousands of festival-goers look on. And the excitement does not stop until “SOLD” is called out. The auction is a major fund raising effort for the Festival Committee. Last year’s King Pumpkin, weighing 1,739 pounds and grown by Barnes-

ville residents Todd and Donna Skinner, brought $5,000 and was purchased by the following group of 20 local businesses: Anson Leasing / A&A Construction; ArtWorks; Avenues of Barnesville/Blue Moon Tavern; Bennoc Inc.; Bostic Concrete; Campbell Plumly Milburn Funeral Home; Harrison House Apartments; Hissom’s Car Care; JMo’s; Joe’s Tire Pros; Tom Johnson Insurance; Kemp Insurance; Kemp Storage; KFC / A&W; Kissel Amusements; Miller’s Bakery; Riesbeck’s Food Markets; Penelope D. Shepherd LLC; VFW Barnesville Post #2792; and WesBanco. The winning bidder not only supports the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival, but also gets front-page billing on the following year’s official Pumpkin Festival Tabloid. They also get to show

off the huge vegetable at their business for a week. Immediately following the sale of the King Pumpkin, an auction of the limited edition glass pumpkins held. The King Pumpkin Auction begins at 5:00pm on Saturday, September 23, in the area near the Giant Pumpkin display. For more information about the auction, stop at the Information Booth located in the vicinity. Just before the auction, the 2016 Royalty and Mascot will be introduced. A second auction will be held on the Festival’s closing day Sunday, September 24, at 5:00pm for all unclaimed produce entries as well as the raffle drawing for the eighth annual, custom-made Barnesville Pumpkin Festival Crock, crafted and donated by local artist Luke Johnson of Johnson Pottery.

PARKING, PARKING LOTS AND SHUTTLES For safely reasons, PLEASE do not park in the alleyways. These areas need to be kept clear for emergency vehicles. Parking for the Pumpkin Festival will be available at Memorial Park, Barnesville High School, The Depot, and the Watt Center. A shuttle bus will run continuously (except during the parade) from 9:30am to 6:00pm on Saturday between the parking lots to the Depot and downtown Festival areas. The shuttle will also run again during the same times on Sunday between the parking lots, downtown and to the High School where the Classic and Antique Car Show will be held. We encourage all Festival visitors to use the shuttle as parking spots are difficult to find.

THE PUMPKIN SEED HARVEST ON SUNDAY

If you’ve been contemplating trying to grow a giant pumpkin, then you might want to attend the Pumpkin Seed Harvest on Sunday. One of the giant pumpkins, other than the first, second or third-place winners, - and only if one is available - will be cut open and the seeds distributed, two each to anyone wanting the seeds. This takes place in the King Pumpkin area, the main attraction, where everyone gathers to admire these gentle giants, get their pictures taken and trade stories.

Tim Rockwell and Todd Skinner provide an interesting and educational presentation that gives everyone an inside look at a big pumpkin and how to grow one. The demonstration takes place at 2:00pm Sunday, September 24, near the Information Booth. Don’t miss this informative exhibition and get your seeds too. We’d love to see you bring in your own giant pumpkins next year! Again, this will only happen if there is a pumpkin available!

Eugene “Doc” Householder has been a long time resident, supporter and promoter of Barnesville, Belmont County and the Pumpkin Festival. Doc attended the first Pumpkin Festival meeting in Barnesville 54 years ago and become President of the festival a few years later. The festival committee members, along with the Village took the festival from a small town fair covering two blocks to one of the biggest festivals in Ohio with visitors coming from all over the United States. Doc began his professional career in Barnesville working for Moore’s Store on Main Street. After 23 years with Moore’s, he resigned and purchased the Western Auto Store, which he continued to run until 1992. When Kirk’s Furniture store closed its doors, Doc felt a business needed to take its place. In 1974, he opened Householder’s Furniture, which stayed in business until 1989. For 50 years, Doc has been a valued member of the Barnesville Area Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Kiwanis Club. Doc started the Belmont County Tourism Council in 1973. After two different directors retired, he resigned from the board, put in his application and in 1989 was hired as Belmont Country Tourism Executive Director. He held this position for 28 years until his retirement

in April 2017. As Director he was instrumental in bringing the Ohio Lottery Cash Explosion television show to the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. Under Doc’s direction and along with the Tourism Council and the Belmont County Commissioners, the former sheriff’s resident (located beside the courthouse in St. Clairsville) was renovated to become a historical museum to display artifacts for Belmont County residents to view. Doc was born in Salesville, Ohio in 1929. His family moved to Quaker City and in 1949, he graduated from Quaker City High School. He then moved to Barnesville and married Rosemary Miller. Their family was completed with two sons, Tony (Debbie) and Tom (Valerie), eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. They were married for 58 years when Rosemary passed away. After four years of living alone, he married Ruth Jones in 2009. Ruth sadly passed away in 2017. In getting to know Doc, you will find that he is very passionate about his community and county, and gives his all to promote the area and help it to flourish. After working 68 years, Doc decided to retire at the age of 88. He now keeps busy with yard work and visiting with friends and family. We are honored to have Doc serve as Grand Marshal for the 54th Giant Pumpkin Parade!

GLASS PUMPKINS FOR 2017 The original small glass pumpkins customized for the 2017 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival will be for sale at the Information Booth. There will be six larger ones auctioned off after the King Pumpkin Auction on Saturday at 5pm. These pumpkins are hand blown by Bob Allen near Moundsville, West Virginia. Bob is the resident artist at Oglebay Institute at Oglebay Park in Wheeling, West Virginia. He started working in the glass industry in 1968 at Fostoria Glass in Moundsville and worked there until it closed in 1985. He also worked for Brooke Glass and L.E. Smith. Bob uses the off hand method where no molds are used to produce one-of-a-kind objects.

THE PUMPKIN WAGON SERVES PUMPKIN-BASED GOODIES The Pumpkin Wagon, operated by the Barnesville Area Chamber of Commerce will be ready to serve you the delicious pumpkin-based foods such as pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin donuts and pumpkin pies during the festival. The Pumpkin Wagon has become one of the most popular booths of the festival with many people coming back year-to-year to get their favorite items. 

Another reason the Pumpkin Wagon has become such a favorite spot is that it is staffed by many community volunteers.  Many of the volunteers have served for a number of years while new ones join in to assist each year.  In addition, “celebrity servers” will be manning the booth representing the local businesses many of which are dedicated members of the Barnesville Chamber of Commerce.

Festival-goers really enjoy patronizing the Pumpkin Wagon as they realize that all the profits go right back into the community to help the local area.  With the Chamber of Commerce heading up the force, the profits are thereby put to use to further the interest of the businesses of Barnesville. It’s a great example of the “community supporting the community,” said John Rataiczak, Chamber Board Member.

On Friday, September 22, Emerald Pointe will sponsor FREE ICE CREAM from 2:00-5:00pm for Senior Citizens! The Pumpkin Wagon’s hours of operations will be Wednesday, September 20 from 5:00-9:00pm; Thursday and Friday, September 21-22 from 11:00am-10:00pm; Saturday from 9:00am-10:00pm; and on Sunday from 12:00noon-5:00pm.

Left to Right: Micah Fuchs, Josh Hetrick, Harold Dailey and Steven Moore Local favorite “Almost Famous” is scheduled to perform following the parade at 4:00pm Saturday, September 23, on the Central Stage. This well-known group from the area performs bluegrass, acoustic, gospel and swing music, both old and new. The band features four of the area’s leading bluegrass artists, each of whom has formed a style of his own, adding unique elements to the sounds that the band produces. Barnesville’s own Harold Dailey, founder of the Pennyroyal Opera House in Fairview and with 50 years of music under his belt, anchors the band together with his solid bass playing and his driving lead and harmony vocals. Steven Moore of Bethesda plays the banjo and provides vocals. This banjo extraordinaire is the 2015 National Bluegrass Banjo Champion held in Winfield, KS. He brings to the band a unique blend of various banjo

styles from the classic Scruggs banjo style to the methods used by jazz banjo master Béla Fleck.

ENTERTAINS FRIDAY, SEPT. 22

ON PUMPKIN STAGE One-A-Chord A Cappella Quartet is a veteran vocal blend of musical talent from Barnesville, Ohio. Their spontaneous humor and audience interaction makes each performance delightfully unique. Ah yes! That’s right! Bringing back the oldies from the 50’s and 60’s! Turning Back Time is the latest CD available with 14 street corner style doo wop selections including an original title cut “Turning Back Time” written by the group’s own Terry McCort in 2008. Their Shades of the Past CD was the national award winning Best A Cappella Doo Wop Album of 2005 so named by the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America. Also, “What’s Your Name?” was voted runner up for Best Doo Wop Song of 2005! The popular group began in October 2000 as a gospel quartet. The religious roots of the quartet are deep in the Church of Christ where a cappella singing (in chapel style without instrumental accompaniment) is the standard. In fact, the very first CD released by O-A-C in 2003 was a popular

gospel album entitled One Lord, One Faith. One-A-Chord has opened shows for Little Big Town, the Vogues, the VanDells, Phil Dirt and the Dozers, the Fabulous Hubcaps, and Rick Kay and the Allnighters. The quartet has sung the National Anthem several times for the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park and their oldies music was featured there on Turn Back the Clock Night in 2003. Tony Huntsman is the baritone for One-A-Chord giving the quartet its rich, full, blending sound. He grew up in Quaker City and is now the preacher at Cedar Avenue Church of Christ in Moundsville, WV where he lives with his wife Alana and children Brayden, Peyton, and Paige. Terry McCort, the high tenor, is the most experienced singer in the group and most musically inclined. A father of four living in Barnesville with his wife Julie, he is president of Financial Investments and a deacon East Main Church of Christ. Wes Wilson is the talented lead singer and youngest member of

He is the proud father of Wes, a chip off the old block. After 34 years of teaching and coaching in Ohio, Brad is the Recruiter for Graduate Education at Ohio Valley University in Vienna, WV. He is an elder at East Main Church of Christ in Barnesville where he lives with wife Nancy. One-A-Chord will entertain you Friday, September 22, from 6:00pm to 8:00 on the Pumpkin Stage.

Decorating Contest

It’s that time of year again when we think about Fall. When we think of Fall, those of us who live in and around Barnesville cannot help but think about the Pumpkin Festival. We start to get in the spirit of the Festival and start decorating with Fall décor and colors. When the Festival rolls around and the town is bustling with people, it is nice to have as many of the downtown windows decorated or painted as possible for all to enjoy. If you haven’t viewed or decorated a window, please do come check them out or perhaps take on the challenge of decorating one. For information on windows or to participate in judging, please call Cindy Ward at 740-296-3646. The categories are: antiques, childrens, collectibles, crafts, royalty and patriotic/ Americana. So while you are downtown, take a stroll, relax a little, check out the windows and let us know what you think. We can tell you from experience, that the

displayers put a lot of time and effort into making the windows look as nice as possible. A big thank you to the Barnesville High School Art Club which does a wonderful job on painting the windows. Windows need to be decorated by Monday evening at 5:00pm on September 18, 2017 to qualify for judging. 2016 Winners: Best of Show Overall: Sonotone; Antiques: 1st – Paul and Kay Mitchell (Designed for Print window) 2nd – Robert Flanagan (Nationwide window); Collectibles: 1st – Matthew Smith (Corner Fitness), 2nd – National Pike Knife Club (Cheffy’s window); Crafts; 1st – Brenda Patterson and Debra Scott (Eagles); Patriotic/Americana; 1st – Barnesville Vision Center, 2nd – Main Street Counseling; Royalty; 1st – Kailey Nugeant, Mini Miss (Harvey Goodman Realty window), 2nd – Lyanna Smith, Princess (Sunrise TV Rental, right side). Merchants: 1st – Harley & Marshall LLC, 2nd – The Raven Pickers.
