Ladies and gentlemen...
start your pumpkins!
Organizers of the Pumpkin Festival in Half Moon Bay, California are offering a $25,000 prize to the person who can grow the first pumpkin weighing one ton.
The winning pumpkin must break the 2,000-pound threshold and be the heaviest pumpkin weighed in at the October 8th event.
Currently, the world record for heaviest-recorded pumpkin is 1,818.5 pounds, grown by Jim and Kelsey Bryson, of Wellington, Ontario. "It's only a matter of time before someone grows the first one-ton pumpkin, and it would be incredibly exciting to have that monumental landmark established right here," said organizer Cameron Palmer.
