Sunday proved to be the perfect autumn day to pick pumpkins and enjoy the Pumpkin Festival in Beckley.

The Burlington United Methodist Family Services held their 8th annual Pumpkin Festival Saturday and Sunday.

Kids of all ages enjoyed hay rides, bouncy castles, live music, an auction, pumpkin cider and much more. Mother of two, Crystal Milam, told 59News how much her children enjoyed the outing.

"This is our second day coming back because yesterday we really didn't have enough time to do everything and my kids woke up this morning asking to come back to the Pumpkin Festival and it's such a beautiful day, I didn't want to tell them no," Milam said.

The most popular item auctioned off was the Kio fish from Japan.
