Folks, trust me - when Blenko provides us with info - I immediately publish. Its my belief Blenko doesn't make items 6 months in advance - - so I doubt you'll be seeing photos prior to the event.
Blenko is a very small glass factory - with a limited number of employees - yet they manage to make special items yearly for local events - and continue to offer an extensive catalog of hand crafted glass.
You can either google Milton Pumpkin Festival or use the link below. If your questions are answered after this - perhaps phone the Milton Chamber of Commerce or phone Blenko Glass. hjh
Started in 1985, the festival was designed to help farmers with the raising and selling of pumpkins. Located in Milton, WV between the two cities of Huntington and Charleston along the I-64 corridor. The festival attracts attention from throughout the region. The festival features a variety of activities aimed at families.* ( from www.pumpkinpark.com )
Blenko Glass will continue with the yearly tradition of having a booth - where they will sell fall items - PUMPKINS hand crafted at the Blenko Glass factory.
The Festival is next weekend - check the website for exact dates.
