This aerial view of the city of Circleville was taken during the 1968 Pumpkin Festival. George R. Haswell, mayor of Circleville, held the first "pumpkin show" in the city in 1903. The show expanded and in 1949 the non-profit group Circleville Pumpkin Show, Inc. was established to manage it. In addition to displays of pumpkins and other agricultural crops, the Circleville Pumpkin Festival has grown to include pageants for Miss Pumpkin and Little Miss Pumpkin, and contests for baking, pie-eating, and hog-calling. Parades, rides and concerts are also part of the festival, held the third week of October. The slide measures 2" x 2" (5.08 x 5.08 cm).
