MADISON | People visiting the southeast South Dakota town of Madison are being greeted by about 600 pumpkins and a train.

Saturday marks the third annual Pumpkin Train at Prairie Village. Children and parents can ride the train to the pumpkin patch, pick out a pumpkin and participate in a variety of children's activities.

The Madison Daily Leader reports (http://bit.ly/T4cPm3 ) that the cost is $5 per child age 12 or younger, proceeds from which will benefit the carousel restoration project. The event will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
