I really miss this event, it had a great feel to it, very earthly. After a visit to their website, Flemings pumpkin run I guess they’re back in November. I grew up as a kid in auto junk yards.
There is no real way to describe what the Pumpkin Run is, but chances are you will be amazed at what you see!
The brainchild of one Harry Fleming, the owner of the now retired auto graveyard, the event has grown by leaps and bounds.It’s a gathering of enthusiast from all aspects of mechanical machinery.The vehicles range from, but not limited to, Antiques, Classics, Street Rods, Lead Sleds, Rat Rods, Muscle cars, Motorcycles, Military, and Vintage Racecars.
Hit & Miss Engines, Steam and Gas powered tractors, Farm Equipment, and Semis can be seen. Other attractions include a restored diner & sawmill, replica gas & train station, along with two vintage racecar museums. There is also the airpower pumpkin chucker cannon and garden style tractor pulls to keep you entertained.
Don’t forget to check out the large flea market that sits right next to the long line of food vendors to keep you going. There is something new and unique every year, so stop on by!
