Madison and others...you need to get your facts straight before you start saying crap on here.
The committee members do not get one red cent of this money! Pumpkin Show has an audit completed every year. You want to see the numbers then ask for them. It is also published in the paper.
Nobody is making money off of this and nobody is going to Hawaii. If they do its on their own money. All of the above is bullshit. Don't tell me that I don't know because I do. I am on the committee.

Who are these said committee members that go to Hawaii "every year"? I don't know a single person that takes the same EXPENSIVE vacation year after year! If they do take these trips, did you ever stop to think that maybe they actually work for a living and can afford it?!

mommy you haven't a clue. Why do you say lies? Prove it. Oh that's right you cant. Most of you people here just like to start crap and you know it. Amen Common Sense! And Go Elsewhere, THANK YOU! For the people that do want to go to PS, they don't want people who complain about it going.

To everyone else, show us your statistics of all this money that the committee people are making off Pumpkin Show. Seriously you cant. You are just trying to ruffle feathers and start crap.

Oh well, I guess you could try to get on the committee if it causes you that much butthurt. People often get jealous if someone else gets a break, is doing good, or lucks into a good position, why is that? Let them have fun, maybe good fortune will come your way if you stop hating on others.

unless you here any of this straight from the horses mouth...don't put any stock in it.

Stories really do get changed around a lot from one person to another.

There are a lot of people on the topix that just like to start crap. They have nothing better to do.

Sure is a lot of trash in this town.

The city does not get that money they get reimbursed for the electric and that is it. vendor lots are charged 32.00 per linear foot minimum you can look that up on the site. which goes to the Circleville pumpkin show committee. there are costs for pumpkin show that they pay but they do make a bit of money. you would think these people would do this to better our community and volunteer but they do take money for it while they walk around in there orange coats acting important.

Yes because everything you read on the internet is true. When has the government told you everything. They only tell you what they want you to know. Or tell something that kinda makes sense, but doesn't actually mean anything what so ever

You are a Fuking idiot they were just making the comment you can look up the prices on the internet didn't need your crazy ass conspiracy theorie on government and internet. And yes they do happen to make a good bit of money from PumpkinShow, of course there is a little expense in setup and clean up plus electric but they are not doing it for free by any means . I am still confused in why on earth we pay a RITA tax while we let a handfull of people keep all this money while it could be going towards the town. they will tell you the money does not belong to circleville it belongs to the committee which no one governs

Where does it say that the money went to the city? Seems to me like ur mad bc the city isn't getting the money but no where does it say that the city gets the money. Put on ur own fair and u can have the profit. Jus pay for the permit, and the security and the taxes.

charge for space and a flat charge for electric. Food vendors
are charged $85.00 for electric. Non-food vendors are charged $50.00 for electric.
Vendors selling merchandise are charged a flat $15.00 for city income tax for the City of
Circleville.
so yeah do the math figure the 300 or so vendors plus rides at $32.00 per linear foot.that pay their own electric . you are right about security they pay kids to watch gates or kids from the vocational school are required too in certain programs. as far as clean up it is done in one night. they make a lot more money then they pay out.
for one thing, rumpke is there nightly cleaning up the trash and the streets for the next day and before they were hired in it was the city's maintaince dept. which was paid by THE PUMPKIN SHOW COMMITEE my dad worked there for over 30 years and I know first hand on how they paid them that week of pumpkin show. and the food venders it's a lot higher then your saying. I agree with the previous statement " people just want something to bitch about"

It is a fraud! The money doesn't go to the city at all. This so called committee is con. They get the money. You would think the goes to our town it sure would help our town on repairs of the city instead of raising taxes.....just sayin...
