The Pumpkin Regatta

We had the pleasure of attending the 5th Annual Giant Pumpkin Regatta today! Started in 2003, it is exactly what the name suggests; a boat race, but the boats are giant pumpkins (no, really!) It sounded like a hoot, so we grabbed the camera and headed out for some fun!

I’m still amazed that these 600-800 pound pumkins could float, let alone hold an adult!! They didn’t just do a little 50 yard dash, they had to row all the way around the lake!! Entertaining for all ages!! (you can click on the pictures to see a bigger pic!)
