Giant Pumpkin & Produce Contest

Weighing in at nearly one ton, you've never seen pumpkins like this before! Giant pumpkin growers from all over California and beyond will be vying for the top prize – and perhaps a world record – as each of their enormous gourds hit the scale. Enter your own produce or pumpkins for a chance to win cash prizes or cheer from the stands as the monstrous orange orbs are moved with a forklift to a special scale. 

Giant Thanks to our Weigh-Off Prize Sponsors, Sky River Casino, SMUD, F & M Bank, Procida Landscape, Inc., and Enterprise Fleet Management.
