Great Carbondale Pumpkin Race
The second annual Great Carbondale Pumpkin Race took place Saturday, Nov. 1. Sponsored by Carbondale Tourism, Carbondale Main Street and the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce. I spotted the executive directors of both Tourism and Main Street there and expect the ED of the Chamber was floating around someplace. The weather was somewhat chilly but about 2 dozen racers turned out. The photo was taken from the hill just north of the Mill Street overpass about 3:45, fifteen minutes before the racing started
