Everyone’s Favorite Jack-o’-lantern

The first sign of autumn for some might be colored leaves, dropping temperatures, or oven-roasted turkeys. But not for me. I know that it’s fall when the giant wooden, orange jack-o’-lantern pops up in Preston Royal Village. The pumpkin is part of the decoration for Saturday’s annual “Fall Family Festival” at Preston Royal Village. The family event says goodbye to the 100 degree temperatures with games, drawings, a petting zoo, and music. Local celebrity Eddie Coker will also be performing a free concert. Stop by with family and friends from 4 to 7 p.m.

Editor’s update at 11:30 a.m.: It looks like our intrepid teenage correspondent has made an all-too-common mistake: Preston Royal Village does not include the entire intersection of Preston and Royal, as a commenter on our Facebook page pointed out:

FYI: That Jack-o’-lantern is not in the parking lot of Preston Royal Village. That’s in the parking lot of the Preston Royal Southwest shopping center across the street, which had its own festival last Friday, October 7th. Two different entities, two different events
