It’s all part of Stone Mountain’s annual, family-friendly Pumpkin Festival which begins Saturday, Sept. 22 and runs through Oct. 28. 

During the day, the Pumpkin Festival offers The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Games with prizes to delight little ones. Other family friendly activities include Peter Peter’s Pie Eating Contest, story time with Mother Goose, and Spookley’s Pumpkin Patch Meet and Greet. Families are invited to participate as performers in Spookley’s Dance-A-Long Party Parade which passes through Crossroads.
