A full day of fun is planned. Giant pumpkin (and vegetable) weigh-offs begin at 12:30 at CML Snider School. The festival was started in 1997 by the late Bill Greer who had a vision to bring the community together for a fall harvest festival and to celebrate the accomplishments of local giant pumpkin growers. Greer was the first to weigh a pumpkin in at more than 1,000 pounds.
