SEE EVENT DETAILS
WHAT: The World's Greatest Gourd Growers and their astounding, mind-boggling, Volkswagen-sized orange orbs hope to squash the world record on Monday, October 13th at the 41st Annual Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off –– the “Super Bowl of Weigh-Offs” –– in the World Pumpkin Capital of Half Moon Bay, California. Organizers are offering $30,000 in total prize money for a new world record pumpkin entered at Half Moon Bay. A host of accomplished, grizzled veteran growers will contend for the coveted title, the $30,000 world record prize and thousands of dollars in additional prize money. In a pay-by-the-pound system, the winner is guaranteed a hefty $6 per pound for the champion mega-pumpkin plus a starring role in the world-famous Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival, Oct. 18-19 (including a free weekend at the posh, pumpkin-centric Ritz-Carlton on the stunningly beautiful Half Moon Bay coast). Defending Half Moon Bay champion Gary Miller, of Napa, CA obliterated the formidable field at the 2013 weigh-off with his Goliath-like 1,985-pound Atlantic Giant. Beauty will share center stage with beefy brawn with a $500 prize awarded to the “most beautiful pumpkin” as judged by the audience based on color, shape and size. The grand champion mega-gourd (along with the top five overall) will be on display at the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival, October 18-19, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street.
WHEN: Monday, October 13, 2014. Weighing will take place from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
