Below are a few video and news posts aggregated from the Internet via Storify after a riot Oct. 18, 2014 at the annual Keene Pumpkinfest.

By the end of the day, #pumpkinfest was the top trending Twitter hashtag, and not in a good way – people around the country were comparing Keene’s unrest to that in Ferguson, and the differences between white and black communities in riot mode.

It’s not a flattering Twitter portrait of Keene, or New Hampshire.
