"Gourdy", the Playful Pumpkin Festival Mascot
He’s the undisputed festival fave … the Prince of Pumpkin Fest!
Gourdy, the playful, mischievious, delightfully rotund official Pumpkin Fest mascot will be bouncing around the Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off (Monday, October 9) and various events and contests during the Pumpkin Festival (October 14-15).
"Everyone loves Gourdy … he has been a huge hit and attracted tons of fans," said festival Chairman Cameron Palmer. "Gourdy will be bopping around the festival having fun with festivalgoers and undoubtedly be the focal point of selfies and photos all weekend," said Palmer.
Gourdy’s mascot costume is a one-of-a-kind custom design by prestigious design fabricator Carol Flemming.
