ESCANABA – Fall is here again and that means that children and adults are searching for the perfect pumpkin.
“I’ve sold a couple thousand,” said John Arvan, who operates a pumpkin stand in the parking lot of the Delta Plaza Mall.
According to the National Retail Federation, more than half of the people who will celebrate Halloween this year are expected to decorate their yards. Most of the pumpkins Arvan sells are Howden pumpkins, the standard pumpkin used for jack-o-lanterns and yard decorations.
