Keene City Council votes 'No' to Pumpkin Festival in 2015
KEENE- After more than two decades, there will be no Pumpkin Festival in Keene in 2015. The City Council voted to deny a permit request for the event this year after riots broke out near the festival in 2014.
Only one councilor voted to support the permit. Others said it's become a burden on the community and they need to find a better, safer way to hold the event.
A committee is being formed to study how other communities hold large events.
