This past weekend there was a huge pumpkin festival in my town. There was a pumpkin regatta, where giant pumpkins were carved out into boats and then raced against each other in the river. This picture is from my personal favorite race, the one with the dogs included on the boats.
This video is from the pumpkin drop that happened on Saturday. The pumpkin was up at least a hundred feet in the air, held up there by a gigantic crane. It must have weighed more than four hundred pounds. It was a big pumpkin. The car was flattened.
