Now that it's October, it's time for pumpkins and gourds. So what better way to spend some free time than to attend a show centered around them?

The 54th annual Ohio Gourd Show is slated Oct. 7-9 at the Delaware County Fairgrounds, 236 Pennsylvania Ave., Delaware, and will feature gourd arts and crafts, competitions, workshops, make-and-take opportunities and even gourd music.

Admission is free for those ages 12 and younger. Parking also is free.
