As many as 20,000 people attending the Egg Harbor 2018 Pumpkin Patch Festival made it the best ever in the 34-year history of the event. Such a record-setting turnout generated one drawback when it came to parking. Visitors found themselves parking and walking a bit to get to the festival. Village Administrator Ryan Heise says organizers, village leaders and Door County Sheriff’s Office will be getting together to see how to make next year’s event better.
The record turnout was a credit to long-time organizer Deb Merkle-Schubert, who’s ending her time as festival volunteer.
