On Saturday my family and I went to the Smoky Lake Pumpkin Festival. We have gone three or four times in the past few years. There is a pumpkin weigh-off to see which pumpkin is the heaviest. The winner (heaviest pumpkin) weighed in at about 1,000 lbs.
After the weigh-off there was a pumpkin auction, where my father bought two pumpkins, one weighing 452 lbs and the other one 166 lbs. We are going to have a Halloween party at our house at the end of the month and carve the pumpkins as part of the festivities.
At the end of the day there was a pumpkin drop, where one big pumpkin was dropped on another, and then the heaviest pumpkin was dropped onto an old car.
I love these coveralls,
A vendor was selling an assortment of very neat pumpkins and gourds,
A very bumpy pumpkin,
The giant splat that the 900 lb pumpkin left after falling on the car,
Sitting on our 452 lb pumpkin,
Sitting on a concrete pumpkin,
On the way home from the festival we stopped it Andrew, home of the world’s largest Mallard Duck,
