This Sunday, Biscuit Batches will be celebrating the best holiday of October…. PUMPKIN FEST! This wonderful pumpkin celebration began 4 years ago in Columbia, Missouri. Traditionally celebrated the weekend before Halloween, this holiday began as a pumpkin feast among friends. Since then, the originators of Pumpkin Fest have gone their separate ways to follow their individual dreams. But every October they pass on the tradition to their new towns and new friends, making Pumpkin Fest a worldwide celebration.This year, Pumpkin Fest will be celebrated across the globe, from Los Angeles to Germany.
 
If you love pumpkin as much as we do at Biscuitbatches blog, please celebrate the day in your own style. Bring your friends, loved ones and neighbors together to enjoy a day full of wonderful pumpkin inspired dishes. You can also celebrate with  pumpkin carving, pumpkin drinks and much much more!  To commemorate the 4th Annual Pumpkin Fest, Biscuit Batches will be posting recipes inspired by the savory, sweet and decadent flavors of the pumpkin!
