Does your local area have an equivalent to pumpkin contests?

Asked by MrGrimm888 (16516points) October 10th, 2018

I have read about 2,000 pound pumpkins. Do people grow any things, competitively, in your region?

Please lost the plant, or vegetable. A general geographic location, would add a lot.

Heck I don’t know. I can’t even imagine a one one pumpkin!

Not sure if there are contests held for it

Yes we have a pumpkin festival in my town every year and the biggest pumpkin contest is part of the festivities. I went to it last week and the winning pumpkin was over a thousand pounds. I live in West Virginia.

@rebbel . Lol. That counts. Thanks for the contribution.

Yes, that sort of think is rampant at County and Regional fairs in Georgia.

(My daughter won a “guess the weight of the pumpkin” contest at her elementary school when she was in second grade.)

Here in the Great Northwestern U.S. we have just about any kind of pumpkin contest you could think of. Pumpkin carving, both above and below water, biggest pumpkin grown, pumpkin chucking (shooting, throwing by mechanical contrivance); you name it, we do it!
(I’m surprised that we don’t have a contest for most smashed jack-o-lantern pumpkins on any particular street the day after Halloween.)

The greater San Francisco Bay Area has a number of such festivals.

The record breaking pumpkin won at the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival.

There is also the Gilroy Garlic Festival and the Castroville Artichoke Food and Wine Festival.
