CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio city famous for its annual Pumpkin Show is painting each of its fire hydrants orange with a green stem.
Public Utilities Director Nathan Anderson says Circleville's hydrants were due for a new coat of paint. So officials decided rather than go with the traditional yellow, they would "do them in a color that reflects our town a little better."
He told the Circleville Herald for an article Saturday (http://bit.ly/16hhHlk) that 41 hydrants within the festival zone are scheduled to be painted by the time the Pumpkin Show opens Oct. 16. The job is being done by volunteers from the Community United Methodist Church.
Eventually, hydrants citywide are expected to be painted the colors of Circleville's favorite squash.
