BESSEMER’S PUMPKINFEST features children’s games downtown on a cloudy Friday evening. A rainbow popped up over the city around 6 p.m., perhaps a sign of clearer skies for today’s activities. A full schedule of events, kicked off by the popular kiddies’ parade at 10 a.m., will be followed by a tractor pull, appearances by the Great Pumpkin and a street dance, among other activities.
