Funland presents Olympian gourds

Pumpkin Funland opened Oct. 1 at Rasmussen Farms in the scenic Hood River Valley.

The free attraction remains open until Nov. 11.

This world of characters changes every year and is crafted with creativity and humor from pumpkins, vegetables, squash, gourds and other items from the farm and greenhouse. Free parking is available.

This year’s theme, “2012 Summer Olympics,” offers everyone the opportunity to relive highlights of this summer’s Olympic Games in London, and to enjoy the farm’s interpretation of iconic British scenes and persons.

(Some of the Royals are making an appearance!)

Just yards away from Funland is the Rasmussen corn maze, where getting “lost” is fun for all.

The theme this year is “Scouting the Gorge: 100 Years of Girl Scouts.”

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
