WELCOME TO THE 53 r d ANNUAL BARNES VILLE PUMPKIN FES TIVAL

The officers and committee members are excited to welcome you to the 2016 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. We are proud to be celebrating 53 years of this festival and invite you to join us Thursday, September 22 through Sunday, September 25 for contests, delicious foods, giant pumpkins, horticultural displays, arts, crafts, 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

well over 100 vendors providing concessions, rides and harvest-inspired arts and crafts, antiques and more. Local organizations and churches offer a variety of home-style 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 contests 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 Billy Brown, The Shumans, Fuse, Hoard & Jones, Lock 17, Ron Retzer,

Rimfire, Almost Famous, Adam Calvert, Cabin Boys +, Deep Down Country 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.

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 Pryor calls out “SOLD”. The auction is a major fund raising effort for the Festival Committee. Last year’s King Pumpkin, weighing 1,486 pounds, brought $9,000 and was purchased by the following group of 19 local businesses: Anson Leasing / A&A Construction; ArtWorks; Avenues of Barnesville; Bennoc Inc.; Blue Moon Tavern; Bostic Concrete; Campbell Plumly Milburn Funeral Home; Harrison House Apartments; Hissom’s Car Care; J-Mo’s; Joe’s Tire Pros; Tom Johnson Insurance; Kemp Insurance; KFC / A&W; Miller’s Bakery; Napa Auto Parts; Riesbeck’s Food Markets ; 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 24, 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 2015 Royalty and Mascot will be introduced. A second auction will be held on the Festival’s closing day Sunday, September 25, at 5:00pm for all unclaimed produce entries as well as the raffle drawing for the fifth annual, custom-made Barnesville Pumpkin Festival Crock, crafted and donated by local artist Luke Johnson of Johnson Pottery.

2016 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival

September 22-25

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 25, 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!

2016 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival

The 2016 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival will officially open with Kathy Johnson doing the ribbon cutting

Kathy is a longtime resident of Barnesville and remembers going to the festival when it started in the basement of the Assumption Catholic Church many years ago. Her involvement continued to grow starting with her parents who became involved with the Pumpkin Festival over 30 years ago. Her father, the late Bernard Groves, showcased antique tractors and farming equipment and her mother, Carol Groves, had a ceramics stand in the heart of the festival. There were many late nights leading up to the festival painting the pumpkins that went atop the trophies and the other ceramics that were sold during the festival. Kathy graduated from Barnesville High School in 1973 and then pursued her Nursing degree from Belmont Technical College. For over 25 years Kathy worked at the Barnesville Medical Center before taking a job at The First United Methodist Church. She has volunteered many years to the local community. She continues to serve as Service Unit Administrator for the Girl Scouts and began her involvement back in 1984 as a troop leader for all three of her daughter’s troops where all of her scouts earned their Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts. She was involved with Junior Women’s Club for 40 years where she served as President for two different terms and was the “Super Mom” when it came to involvement with her daughters ex-

tracurricular activities during middle school and high school. Despite her recent health problems with Diabetes and Kidney Disease, she continues her involvement today with the Pumpkin Festival by overseeing the Horticulture portion of the festival. Kathy has been married to her husband, Bobby, for 42 years and they have three children, Melissa (Gilbert) Dodd, Jill (Tony) Gerschutz and Natalie (Jarrod) Anderson along with four grandchildren, Logan, Lauren, Nicholas and Sadie.

A Bountiful Display Of Agriculture & Horticulture Entries

The Agriculture and Horticulture Displays require many hours of labor by both the growers and the festival volunteers. At the heart of the Festival, these richly colored displays provide a brilliant backdrop for the large pumpkins. Entries are accepted from 9:00am to 8:00pm on Thursday, September 22. It takes many volunteers 11 hours to accept entries. We invite new exhibitors to join the many annual ones, who come year after year. So gather those pumpkins, gourds, fruits or vegetables or make a scarecrow and bring to the festival to make our largest display ever for all to enjoy. The FFA judges award the winning ribbons on Friday morning. Bobby and Kathy Johnson are the Agriculture and Horticulture Chairpersons. For further information, or if you would like to volunteer to assist in taking in the entries, please call Bobby or Kathy at 740-425-1027.

2016 Parade Grand Marshall James Wells Leading the 2016 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival Parade will be parade marshal, James “Jimmy” Wells. Jimmy has been a resident of Barnesville his entire life, son of Martha L. Wells and the late Denver Wells. Jimmy has been married to Sandy (Winters) Wells for 49 years. Together they have five children: James (Lori) Wells; Jody (Jeffrey) Crum; Jeffrey Wells; Jason (Kristen) Wells; and Justin (Brittany) Wells. Jimmy and Sandy are the proud grandparents of twelve grandchildren: Hunter, Miles, Samantha, Shelby, Joe, Sam, Jamie, Sydney, Katie, Autumn, Zac, and Alex. 2016 marks the 50th year that Jimmy has been an electrician. It is not often that you hear of a colorblind electrician, but Wells is one of a select few. He started his career as an electrician in 1966, the same year he graduated from Barnesville High School. He first worked as an electrician with William “Bill” Ball until starting his own business in 1987 when Ball retired. Jimmy has provided electricity for the festival every single year the festival has been on the streets of Barnesville, after growing out of the Catholic Church basement in the 1970’s. Wells has assisted with many projects throughout the village including restoration and construction at the Bradfield Building, the Mansion Museum, Shamrock Stadium Press Box, the Christmas Snowflakes, and Park Lake Fountain. He faithfully maintains the H.B. Armstrong clock, ensuring it is timed correctly year round, and winds the clock for daylight savings time. Wells is a member of the B.P.O.E. 1699, the American Legion, and the 200 Club. Wells is a staple at the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. He is well-known to all of the concessionaires, the festival committee, and throughout the village for his work. He begins preparations for the next festival the day after it ends. To Jimmy the festival is

a year round job that has turned into a hobby. He is assisted by his sons, his grandsons, and Jeff Lazenby. During the festival, Jimmy can be found from sun up to sun down on his festival cart or sitting with his friend “Clem” at Antiques on the Main.

Glass Pumpkins For 2015 The original small glass pumpkins customized for the 2016 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 23, Emerald Pointe will sponsor FREE ICE CREAM from 2:005:00pm for Senior Citizens!  The Pumpkin Wagon’s hours of operations will be Wednesday, September 21 from 5:009:00pm; Thursday and Friday, September 22-23 from 11:00am-10:00pm; Saturday from 9:00am-10:00pm; and on Sunday from 12:00noon-5:00pm.

Based out of Cincinnati, OH/Northern KY, Billy Brown also travels around the country bringing his style of country music to the masses. From Texas to West Virginia, Billy Brown has played in the smallest bars to NASCAR Races, Casinos, Festivals, Toby Keith Bars, Hard Rock Cafes, Tin Roof Bars and everywhere in between. Meet the band: Billy Brown, Lead Vocals

- Growing up in Eastern Kentucky, Billy learned the values that continue to permeate not only his music, but what he does with it. Not satisfied with simply using music as a creative outlet, he is also committed to using music to help others in need. Chuck Smith, Lead Guitar & Vocals Playing rock music for the last 20 years, Chuck recently made the transition to country, bringing a unique style to the band, blending blues and rock with country riffs. Chuck also produced the video for the song “Can I Tell You” for the band. Matt Retherford, Drums

- Matt brings a grounded sensibility to the band. Maybe one of the most solid drummers in Cincinnati, he can always find the pocket and drive the band. Dan Nash, Bass Guitar Not only rounding out one of the best rhythm sections in the scene, Dan also co-wrote most of the songs on the Country Roots EP. A talented player, singer and songwriter, Dan really brings a lot to the table in the Billy Brown Band. Billy Brown performs Friday night on the Central Stage at 9pm. He will also be performing at the Blue Moon Tavern on Saturday night.

As of the summer of 2016, John Markowicz (versatile keyboard player/vocals) has joined us.
