Heading to the 2019 Fall Festivals and Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Offs
Between now and late October, millions of Americans will flock to a wide variety of Fall festivals. Many of these festivals will have giant pumpkin weighoffs, pumpkin pie eating contests, and a huge array of other pumpkin related events and contests. Attempts will be made to break the world record in a number of categories.
For the record, the largest pumpkin ever grown is 2,624.6 pounds (shown above). It was grown by Mathia Willimijn of Germany. He brought his giant pumpkin to the European Championship Weigh-off on October 9, 2016. Will this record, or other records, be broken in the next few weeks? We certainly hope so. That's what its all about!
Don't let Fall go by without attending at least
