Our 12th annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off is set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11. Growers from around the Northwest and Canada cart dozens of enormous pumpkins – from 500 to more than 1,000 pounds – to our parking lot to compete for bragging rights and $2,000 in this family-friendly day that includes a carving demonstration, food and rides. Master pumpkin carver Russ Leno will demonstrate his talent, while people can partake of the Market’s Pumpkin Brat Barbecue, caramel apples, free hot cider and free hay rides. The pumpkins are weighed on a giant scale after being placed there via a Central Market forklift and net system. Last year’s winner set a record for this event – 1,666 pounds. It’s also a great setting for family pictures. Pumpkins are entered through the Pacific Northwest Giant Pumpkin Growers organization – www.pnwgpg.com, which also provides the scale.
