It won't be the animals you expect at this year's Pumpkinville Fall Festival. The Leesburg Animal Park has brought in more than a dozen large, sculpted dinosaurs for the popular fall event.

Admission is free. Friday thru Sunday. Ashburn Village Sports Pavilion, 20585 Ashburn Village Blvd, Ashburn.

Music and dance will be paired with children's classics. The Loudoun Symphony and the Loudoun Ballet will host two performances of "Fur, Feathers and Friends."
