Pumpkin festival 2011 on this weekend (24/25 September)

Sure I posted about this last year too!

But I'm a big fan so anyway the Mathis Hof (in Bottmingen just outside Basel) Pumpkin Festival is on this weekend (24th and 25th September) if you fancy popping along for some Kurbis-everything. There are hundreds of varieties of pumpkin for sale as well as other farm produce including schnaps and preserves. There's lots of fun activities for kids as well - a Maize maze, straw castle, kids can carve or draw on a pumpkin and hit each other with pillowcases of feathers....! It's worth it if the weather is nice. Highly recommend the pumpkin soup.

Check their website for location, timing etc.

We are going on the Sunday with a bunch of people from the BCT so if you feel like joining us, the more the merrier. We're meeting at 3pm at the maze entrance (although we'll probably be there a bit earlier than that for some pumpkin-related lunch - or just sausages!)

Maybe see you there?
