Two episodes of the Ohio Lottery’s "Cash Explosion" game show, the longest running state lottery show in the nation, will be taped at this year’s 50th Annual Barnesville Pumpkin Festival on Friday afternoon, September 27.  The shows are part of the Cash Explosion’s road tour this fall.  The show will be open and free to the public (no tickets necessary) and will offer fans a chance to participate in the taping and get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to produce this weekly show.   Participants will have a chance to win cash and merchandise prizes by playing Cash Explosion promotional games.  The two shows will be taped back-to-back and held in the Barnesville High School auditorium.   Information about the show and times will be available at the Cash Explosion website –
