Fruitville Grove celebrates its 31st annual Pumpkin Festival.
With the first weekend of October come and gone, Fruitville Grove has transformed into a fall destination. Sarasotans looking to ditch the Florida beach for a pumpkin feast can find family fun at the 31st annual Fruitville Grove Pumpkin Festival.
Held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, the festival features activities including a kids fun zone, pony rides, pumpkin painting, hayrides and a petting zoo. Local food trunks, vendors and musicians will also be at the festival. Pumpkins are available for purchase through the market.
