The highlight event is a Giant Pumpkin Boat Race between assorted sponsored businesses and groups from the surrounding communities. The average pumpkin size to race is 400 to 500 pounds! The Giant Pumpkin Festival is a fun event that brings the community together to watch a ridiculous Giant Pumpkin “boat” race, eat local foods, and enjoy local artists and vendors.
This year’s festival will include booths with Craft Vendors, Artists, Direct Sales Vendors, Food Vendors, and a Farmers Market. The entire event is family fun focused.
