Giant Pumpkin and Produce Contest

The World's Most Amazing Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off

With pumpkins weighing in at nearly one ton, it is a contest of mythic proportions. Gasp in amazement as the monstrous, orange orbs hit the scales on Saturday morning. Enter your own produce or pumpkins in the weigh-off for a chance to win cash prizes, or cheer from the stands as the gargantuan pumpkins are moved with a forklift to a special scale.
