Pumpkin growers to hold weigh-off at Warren farm
WARREN, R.I. (AP) — Pumpkin aficionados from across New England are gathering in Warren to see some giant pumpkins.
The Southern New England Giant Pumpkin Grower’s Annual Weigh-off is being held at Frerichs (FRAY’-ricks) Farm on Saturday.
The farm says around 3,500 people attended last year’s weigh-off from around New England and New York.
A Rhode Islander holds the world record for heaviest pumpkin. Ron Wallace’s pumpkin weighed in at 2,009 pounds at least year’s Topsfield Fair in Massachusetts.
