ALBION – Emery Vick, an Albion kindergartner, paints a pumpkin today as part of the Albion FFA Fall Festival. About 500 elementary students have been part of the festival the past two days.

Students were able to paint a pumpkin that will be theirs to bring home. Some of the pumpkins were grown at the Albion FFA Land Lab while others were donated by Panek Farms.

Nesbitt Farms also donated apples and cider and Mayer Brothers contributed donuts.
