Pumpkin fun at meeting

The Odenwald Association kicked off the new session with a “Kürbisfest”, a  Pumpkin celebration as is enjoyed in the Odenwaldkreis.  Members were invited to bring along their carved pumpkins to be entered into a competition.   

Members also contributed Pumpkin themed refreshments including Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Risotto and other savouries flavoured with the luscious pulp. 

While members mingled and tasted, they were able to enjoy a slideshow which Walter compiled from members’ photographs showing most of the events over the summer and, what an eventful time it’s been  including:

  •  participating in a canal cruise;
  • Tryst parade in Falkirk; 
  • a team in The Top of the Town Quiz; 
  • a group tour of The Kelpies; 
  • a bottle stall at Airth Highland Games;
  • private visits to friends in the Odenwald, representatives at the Schottische Nacht in Erbach Schloss Hof and a group visit to the Odenwald in September. 

A busy and enjoyable schedule.

Provost Cllr Tom Coleman attended the meeting and chose the winners of the competition who received a small prize.   It was a great night. Viele Späße!

Below are some images taken in 2014 of the pumpkin celebrations in the Odenwald area. Did you know the pumpkins aren’t a vegetable – but are the largest fruit in the worl?

In various areas you can find pumpkin festivals in Germany.
Pumpkins aren’t vegetables – they’re fruit!
Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes are on display.
