PULLMAN – The Washington State University Eggert Family Organic Farm will hold its annual Fall Harvest Festival, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12.

Several families mill about a pumpkin patch, with pumpkins all over the ground. Some people carry pumpkins, some are looking them over.

The festival will include u-pick pumpkins, a produce sale, games for the family, pumpkin pie, fresh apple cider, and face painting. The event is hosted by the farm and organized by students in WSU’s Organic Agriculture major. Several students will be on hand to direct and interact with festival participants.
