Fun at this weekend's Fall Pumpkin Fest includes new contests

By Lorri Drumm
Meadville Tribune

Pumpkin drop: Pumpkins weighing more than 1,000 pounds will be dropped from a crane onto vehicles Saturday and Sunday during the Fall Pumpkin Fest at Conneaut Lake Park.

P-words are predominant as volunteers prepare for a weekend full of parading, purchasing, perusing and even peering at plummeting pumpkins.

The 27th annual Fall Pumpkin Fest is from 2 to 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 to 5 Sunday at Conneaut Lake Park, along Route 618, near Conneaut Lake. The Fall Pumpkin Fest Parade is at 10 a.m. Saturday in downtown Conneaut Lake.

Admission to the festival is free. There is a $5 fee to park, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Conneaut Area Senior High School baseball team.

Visitors to the event may also park downtown Conneaut Lake on Saturday and take a leisurely cruise to the park. Saturday only, the Barbara J, Conneaut Lake's historic stern-wheeler, will depart its dock next to Ice House Park at the southern end of the lake at 12:30 and 4 p.m. to shuttle riders to the park. The boat will then leave the park and travel back to the borough at 1:30 and 7 p.m. The fare is $5 one-way and the trip takes approximately 30 minutes.

More than 150 vendors, including artists, crafters, home show sales and a variety of food vendors, will be set up throughout the park each day of the event. Live entertainment takes place on two stages each day and throughout the park with strolling entertainers on Saturday and Sunday.

A car cruise-in is also from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday on the Free Act Lawn at Conneaut Lake Park.

All amusement park rides that are normally operational will be in operation during the festival, according to Matthew Briggs, the park's operations manager.

An udderly wacky contest takes place Saturday, all in good fun to benefit the fight against multiple sclerosis, according to Becky Leonard, the festival's chairperson.

A celebrity cow milking contest is at 3:30 p.m. Saturday. The celebrities, who have yet to be identified, will raise money to compete to see who is the best at milking a cow, Leonard said.

Another competition that's new to the event this year is on Sunday. A pizza-eating contest is at 2 p.m.

A $1 entry fee allows participants of any age to test their ability to consume mass quantities of pizza. The pizzas are being donated by Pizza Hut at Conneaut Lake. Winners will not get a lifetime supply of antacid but will receive pizza coupons, according to Leonard.

If cow-milking and pizza-gorging don't sound messy enough, there's a chance to watch the insides of a huge pumpkin splatter all over a vehicle on two occasions this weekend. The Giant Pumpkin Drop is at 5 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday.

Pumpkins weighing more than 1,000 pounds will be dropped from a crane onto vehicles. Witnesses to this event vow to never again go for a drive when the weather forecast predicts a pumpkin storm.

With clear skies forecast, lots of vehicles will take to the downtown streets for Saturday's parade, according to Pat McGee, the parade's organizer.

"The parade just gets bigger and bigger each year," McGee said. "People call and ask me how much it costs to be in our parade. When I tell them it's free, they're surprised and they all want to be in it."

The parade will include floats, fire trucks, drill teams, dance units, more than 15 horses, approximately 20 different Zem Zem Shrine Club Motor Corps units and more, McGee said.

The parade lineup is complete, but McGee said she would squeeze in last-minute additions. McGee may be reached at 671-6885.

Leonard was also accepting last-minute additions to the list of more than 50 prizes available to win as part of the scholarship raffle. Many local businesses, organizations and individuals donate items to be raffled each year during the festival, Leonard said.

The raffle is located around the Log Cabin along the park's midway. Visitors may purchase 20 tickets for $5. Proceeds from the raffle are used to provide scholarships to several students at CASH each year.

Lorri Drumm can be reached at 724-6370 or by email at lorrid@meadvilletribune.com.

Not sure why this wasn't mentioned in the article since this is, in my opinion, a nice selling point to the festival, but the Conneaut Lake published authors will be signing books together.

Frank and son pulled guns out at the Spirit Lounge last night during a fight and state police were called.  Should be interesting the impact to their liquor license with their firearm stunt.

If they have CC permits (Concealed Carry), they could have them revoked IF brandishing their guns was not justified.  We don't really know what went down there, but details should be interesting.

Steve certainly knows firearms violations and a liquor license do not go together.

I did not see Frank Sr. down there at the time....... it was only Frank Jr. that was supposedly involved. I had just left Sharkey's when it happened, but there were friends still down there.

It sounds to me like you do not know if he was there since you were not there at the time.   You did not see him at the time but just left prior?   ;D   Certainly fights tend to draw a crowd out of nowhere or is it a small town cover-up.  I see nothing, I hear nothing.

Your reading skills elude you again..... I had just walked out of Sharky's and did not see Frank Sr. at any time while down there. The lights and sirens came 5 minutes after I passed the two security guards who apparently grabbed the wrong people originally involved in the fight. The only person identified to me (by people who were right there) shortly afterward as being involved was Frank Jr., which would put your information that both of them pulled guns as faulty. But readers are used to that.

My reading skills are just fine, thank you.  You said you did not see him down there at the time and the next sentence you said you were not there as you left prior.........

The Trustees filed a motion with the bankruptcy court yesterday to sell "Lot 5" along the lakefront. Lot 5 is the parcel carved out of the former Flynn Lots closest to the fence line. The property is being sold despite the current court case over the adverse possession filed by one of the property owners (A. Eakin) relative to access for boat docks on the lakefront.

Just heard a lot about how Frank was different, I could understand Steve firing one off but Frank and Son pulling one out.......  Now a professor teaching our kids, come on.  Bet employers don't take too kindly of this by their employees.

“Trustees offering ownership to land lease holders at Conneaut Lake Park
By Keith Gushard, Meadville Tribune, October 19, 2017

Holders of long-term land leases at Conneaut Lake Park soon will get a letter about obtaining ownership of the land from Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park.

Letters to the approximately 170 leaseholders are starting to be sent out by Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park, the nonprofit corporation that oversees operations of the amusement park and owns the land. Holders of those long-term leases have a home or other building on the land — or it's a vacant lot.

In August, Trustees unanimously approved a policy converting the 99-year or 999-year land leases people have to allow them to obtain ownership of the leased land from the park. Holders of those long-term leases have a home or other building on the land or may be vacant lot.

Conversion of those leases to ownership will be a long-term process, Mark Turner, executive director of Trustees, said at Trustees' board meeting Tuesday at the park.

"We need to create a deed for each one (that converts) and file it. It will take a number of years to finish," Turner said.

Trustees also must develop a policy to cover costs to convert the long-term lease of the property to a fee simple holding, or absolute ownership, for the lease holder.

Preliminary estimates for the cost of conversion at approximately $500 to cover both attorney costs and the title transfer filing fees at the Crawford County Recorder of Deeds Office.

At $500 it’s a fraction of what former lot lessees  previously paid in the 1990s to secure ownership of their lot at the last park leased lot offering. With the reported lower $500 transfer charge it appears the EPACC-dominated CLP board of trustees motivated to get out of the lot lease business as the $500 charge barely covers legal processing fees, and trustees of CLP Inc. are apparently not making much if any profit on sale of park trust assets.

For the newer readers, the yellow-tinted lots depicted on the park LAND USE PLAN, seen below which is found in the park’s bankruptcy plan, indicates the dispersal of the leased lots that the park has previously identified it will be offering for ownership title transfer to lot lessees.
