may be either a fictional character or a real person associated
with a variety of beauty contests held in North America. A
fictional pumpkin queen serves as the basis (and title character )
of a webisode (Episode #6: "Curse of the Pumpkin Queen") that can
be seen online at 8Legged Entertainment. "The Great Queen Pumpkin"
served as a major character in the film Curse of Halloween. In R.
L. Stine's Haunting Hour: Don't Think About It, "Priscilla is
crowned Pumpkin Queen." Recently, Marlane Kennedy published the
book Me and the Pumpkin Queen. A longer-standing tradition of more
than a half dozen pumpkin shows and festivals in various American
states are pageants to determine the show or festival's Pumpkin
Queen. While this tradition goes back to at least the 1930s, usage
of the title "Pumpkin Queen" has increased dramatically after 2000.
Many of these shows and festivals have attendance figures in at
least the tens and in some cases hundreds of thousands, a number of
who come to see the crowning of the show or festival's new "Queen."
These ladies usually also participate in some kind of major parade
associated with their respective festival or show. Pumpkin Queens
from the more prominent shows and festivals also attend other food
festivals and parades in their states while serving as
representatives of their respective pumpkin festival or show. These
ladies also receive a good deal of local and in some cases regional
media attention and are representative of a well-established
autumnal tradition in North America and possibly elsewhere.

have appeared throughout the world wide web and even on such
prominent sites...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=742580
