Have a Gourd Time!
The West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta invites costumed paddlers to steer 1,000-pound pumpkins across a lake in Tualatin, Oregon. This year’s race, with vessels supplied by Pacific Giant Vegetable Growers, happens on Oct. 20. (Big Pumpkin Fact: The world’s largest pumpkin, grown in Belgium and never, as far as we know, used as a boat, weighed 2,624 pounds!) tualatinoregon.gov/pumpkinregatta
