Orange pumpkins sit inside this old farming wheel as part of a produce stall display in Keremeos, in the Okanagan-Similkameen Region of the Okanagan in British Columbia. Pumpkins are a symbol of fall and of the harvest and so they are often used in displays to stir up memories of the harvest and of the approaching changing season. The contrast of the orange colour of the pumpkins against the aged grey and brown colour of the wheel helps to make a colourful display and attract customers to the produce stall.
Keremeos, in the Okanagan-Similkameen Region of the Okanagan is known for being a windy town, but also a beautiful one, and one of its claims to fame is the abundant fruits and vegetables that are grown and sold there. The South Similkameen Region is perfect for growing all types of fruits and vegetables, due to its warm climate and ideal soil conditions.
People will come from all over the interior and southern British Columbia to take advantage of produce that is sold in this region and fruit and vegetable stands will line the routes in and out of Keremeos to cater to the traffic passing by so they can stop and buy some locally grown produce. The pumpkins in the old wheel will help to attract notice using the colourful display.
