Great Pumpkin Festival planned for Oct. 5

The Millville Town Council concluded its business on Sept. 10 in just nine minutes. Plans are in “full swing” for the Oct. 5 Great Pumpkin Festival, said Town Manager Debbie Botchie. Flyers are being distributed, and the Indian River High School JROTC will volunteer to run the festival again.

The summer’s final Millville Farmers Market was scheduled for Sept. 12, where market manager Linda Kent said the Millville Volunteers would donate $250 raised this summer to Camp Barnes.

“I think it’s been a good year,” said Kent, who is seeking additional vendors for next year.

The next regular Millville Town Council meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m. The Planning & Zoning Commission is scheduled to meet on Oct. 14 at 7 p.m.
