Welcome To The 56 th Annual Barnesville Pumpkin Festival The officers and committee members are excited to welcome you to the 2019 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. We are proud to be celebrating 56 years of this festival and invite you to join us Thursday, September 26 through Sunday, September 29 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 harvestinspired 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. We have many fine musical

acts this year plus all types of entertainment. 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!

Dedication to

Thelma Froehlich September 23, 1921 - July 3, 2019

Thelma Maxine Froehlich was a long-time supporter of the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. Along with her husband, William, she proudly participated since the very beginning. They were committee members for several years and they were best known for their large horticulture displays. Even into her late 90s, Thelma never missed an opportunity to be at the Festival and was always eager to be at the ribbon cutting. Her legacy has carried on through her family who has always been actively involved. Thelma’s family and friends will certainly miss her this year at the Pumpkin Festival.

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

Everyone gathers around downtown for the Wednesday night Giant Pumpkin Weighoff 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 25, 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

only ones accepted on Wednesday night. Exhibitor of the largest entry receives $2.00 per pound. Winner of the largest “locallygrown” pumpkin receives $100. “Locally-grown” is defined as any exhibit grown in Belmont, Guernsey, Harrison, Jefferson, Monroe and Noble counties. Second largest overall receives $1,000, 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 P u m p k i n Festival is the auctioning off of the King Pumpkin. This year should be even more exciting with the possibility of yet another r e c o r d breaking pumpkin weight by one of our favorite growers. 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 1,511.5 pounds and grown by Todd Cotterman of Fenton, MI, brought $8,000 and was purchased by a group of Barnesville businesses. 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 will be held. The King Pumpkin Auction begins at 5:00pm on Saturday, September 28, 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 2019 Royalty and Mascot will be introduced. A second auction will be held on the Festival’s closing day Sunday, September 29, at 5:00pm for all unclaimed produce entries as well as the raffle drawing for the tenth 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.

The Daniel Stephens Family 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 29, 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

AGRICULTURE & HORTICULTURE ENTRIES PROVIDE A VISUAL DISPLAY OF NATURE’S BOUNTY Agriculture and Horticulture Displays are a feast for the eyes while providing a colorful backdrop for the giant pumpkins. Many hours of labor by both the growers and the festival volunteers go into these displays and we encourage anyone to participate. Entries are accepted from 9:00am to 8:00pm on Thursday, September 26. It is a long day for the many dedicated volunteers as they work to accept entries. Gather those pumpkins,

gourds, fruits or vegetables or make a scarecrow and bring to the festival to make this 56th year a splendid agricultural display. Size limitations do apply so if you have any questions concerning restrictions or would like to volunteer to accept entries, please call the chairperson, Ashley Paprocki at 740-425-1350. The FFA judges will award the winning ribbons on Friday morning.

MARTIN SCHUMACHER’S FAMILY WILL BE THE 2019 RIBBON CUTTERS

Norma Matko and Marty Schumacher Jr. will cut the ribbon to open the 57th annual Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. Their late father Martin (who passed away in February) was one of the founders of the festival.

One of the founders of the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival, known in its early days as the Fall Festival, was Martin J. Schumacher, Sr. With Mr. Schumacher’s passing this past February, a true legacy was lost. Martin was actively involved with the Pumpkin Festival for many years and grew the King Pumpkin seven times in the 70’s and 80’s. When including his son, Martin Jr., the King Pumpkin was awarded to the Schumacher’s for a whopping 12 times! Farming and gardening were a family tradition for Martin and his wife Dorothy. Many may recall the Schumacher Family Pumpkin Patch on Rt. 800. It was hard to miss with hundreds of pumpkins of all sizes. This year, it is befitting that we have the family of Mr. Schumacher cut the ribbon signaling the official start of the 56th Annual Barnesville Pumpkin Festival!

2019 PARADE GRAND MARSHALS ARE LOCAL WWII VETERANS John Anderson, Guy Atkinson, Bob Harris, Homer Luyster, Paul Luyster, Francis Plumly, Richard Steele and Henry Gallagher (recently deceased but represented by his wife, Georgie). We are proudly honoring eight local World War II veterans this year in recognition of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France, on June 6, 1944. We owe so much to these gentleman and salute the following: John Anderson (served under General Patton), Guy Atkinson (Prisoner of War), Bob Harris (Sergeant in the Air Force), Homer Luyster (Army Corporal, served in Japan), Paul Luyster (Purple Heart recipient), Francis Plumly (Army Infantry, Prisoner of War), Richard Steele (Air Force Sergeant) and the late Henry Gallagher (Electrician in the Navy) who passed away this year on June 6th, the actual 75th D-Day anniversary. “A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.” – President John F. Kennedy, Oct. 1963

This year could mark the last major D-Day milestone to commemorate their service. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, of more than 16 million Americans who served in World War II, fewer than 500,000 were still living in 2018. The youngest of these heroes are almost all in their mid- to late 90’s and soon the voices of the Greatest Generation will be forever silent. These gentlemen put their lives on hold and answered their country’s call when it needed them most. Freedom is not free and we are better off today because of what these veterans sacrificed. So, while we still can, we honor them for their duty to our country. Thank you John, Guy, Bob, Homer, Paul, Francis, Richard and Henry. God Bless all of our Veterans!

SPOTLIGHT SHINES ON FRENCH FRIES VENDOR AFTER ALL THESE YEARS! Willard French Fries was the first Barnesville Pumpkin Festival vendor to come here when the festival moved from the Catholic church basement to the downtown streets. Although Earl Willard has passed,

his partner Todd Powell has operated this iconic stand for 17 years during the Pumpkin Festival. Please stop in and say hello and taste their splendid fries and you’ll know why they’ve been coming for so many years.

Proud Supporters of our Community and the Barnesville Pumpkin Festival!


Page 24 2019 Barnesville Pumpkin Festival

Again this year, I want to reiterate how much we, the Pumpkin Festival Committee, appreciate the commitment so many of you have given to this Festival. By purchasing ads, sponsoring contests and entertainment or donating endless hours of time volunteering, YOU make this festival the success it

is and keep it one of the greatest free entertainment opportunities available in this wonderful state of Ohio. For 56 years, the Pumpkin Festival has been held in Barnesville at the end of September. Thanks to all of you who collectively make this Festival happen!

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-toyear 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 President. On Friday, September 27, 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 25 from 5:009:00pm; Thursday and Friday, September 26-27 from 11:00am-10:00pm; Saturday from 9:00am10:00pm; and on Sunday from 12:00noon-5:00pm..

FOR THEIR 45 YEAR REUNION! Forty-five years ago, Kiddog was formed when three young men began playing music together in Barnesville, Ohio. Two of Kiddog members David Bishop, Dale Fraizer and Sam Shuman. the members, David Bishop and Sam Shuman, were classmates and began playing music in the Bishop family basement while in junior high school. In 1973, the Frazier family moved to Barnesville, Ohio. Their youngest son, Dale was a junior in high School with a 12-string guitar, a strong singing voice and desire to be in a band. Dale’s smooth lead vocal proved to be the missing piece and by spring of 1974, Dale, David, and Sam had become great friends and had melded their talents into the band that became known as Kiddog. From the beginning, Kiddog focused on writing and performing their own songs. Cutting their musical teeth in clubs like Tin Pan Alley, The Falls Club, Jurek’s and Gasber’s Fine Day Restaurant. Kiddog soon established a relationship with Jamboree USA and began opening shows at Capital Music Hall for Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Lynn Anderson and many others. The band’s first recording, “Fly Like the Wind,” received top 10 airplay on local radio stations and provided Kiddog the opportunity to perform at dozens of colleges, fairs and festivals in the mid to late 1970’s including an appearance at the second annual Jamboree in the Hills. In 1977, Kiddog recorded a 10 song LP at Soundshop Studio in Nashville, Tennessee and added two additional members, Mark Armbrecht on Bass, and Tim Carroll on Drums. Kiddog was also featured on two television broadcasts on WOUB TV in Athens, Ohio. Kiddog performs Friday, at 8pm on the Central Stage.

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 O-A-C.
