NEW BREMEN — New Bremen Pumpkinfest returns Sept. 27-28 with music, arts and food this year, but it will go forward without the weighing of the large orange gourds — transitioning instead to a fall festival atmosphere that’s more about catching up with one another as a community.
“Instead of doing that, we are focusing on creating a fall festival,” said Lauren Bertke, who is organizing this year’s event.
