Goomeri Pumpkin Festival

You may be asking yourself what the appeal is in rolling a pumpkin down a hill. That's the same question the Goomeri Pumpkin Festival's 15,000 visitors also ask themselves before heading down to get involved in the celebrations and tomfoolery of great entertainment, dancing, fun competitions, delicious food and good old country hospitality, besides the highlight - the legendary Great Australian Pumpkin Roll, of course. Hundreds of market stalls line the streets selling more pumpkin produce such as pumpkin soup, pie and even pumpkin fudge. One should never underestimate the simple joy of rolling a pumpkin down a hill!
