Oak Bank in Fitchburg gave away more than 10,000 pounds of pumpkins and raised over $1,600 for Dane County Humane Society at its annual pumpkin give-away last weekend.
The pumpkins were an average of 18 pounds this year, so that's roughly over 550 pumpkins, according to Oak Bank representatives.
It was a wonderful fall day, with an estimated 500 plus people attending. There were long lines at the horse and carriage rides and FunPlay bouncer. Maddie the DCHS dog, Bucky Badger, Maynard the Mallard, Henry the Vilas Zoo Lion, Crash Helmet & Nexus Martial Arts Panda were all there - handing out hugs to all the children.
