Big Orange

Anamosa, IOWA --- In my travels I made a point to head to Anamosa for the annual Pumpkin Festival. The first order of the day was the "weigh-in" for the largest pumpkin. Some were brought in the back of pick-up trucks (like this one) and others on trailers hauled behind trucks. Amazingly, this wasn't the winner, but it was close. The prize went to a 1700+ pound white pumpkin. This one was 1470 pounds (667 kilos). Happy Halloween.
