Attendees hunt for the perfect pumpkin while others take horse-and-buggy rides on Saturday at the Littleton Museum.

That first sip of apple cider, savored in the middle of a pumpkin patch, signals for many the arrival of autumn. 

The hunt for the perfect pumpkin to carve and a bumpy ride behind a horse-drawn wagon also are seasonal traditions. And at Littleton’s Harvest Festival on Saturday at the Littleton Museum, traditions as colorful as fall leaves were enjoyed by young and old.

For the past decade, Carol Montgomery has brought  her granddaughters to the festival, and this year Katie, 12, and Lilly, 10, enjoyed the autumnal offerings as much as ever.
