“Giant Pumpkins Come to Halloween Hoorah
A Showcase of Champions
Halloween Hoorah is well under way and about to kick into high gear with the arrival of three of the largest pumpkins grown in the United States this year—each weighing over 1,500 pounds—including the new world record holder!
This unforgettable display of spectacular squash runs from Oct. 23-31.
And don’t miss Oct. 30, when Chris Stevens’s 1,810 ½ lb. record-setting monster will be carved into the world’s largest jack-o’-lantern! The Giant Pumpkins join the Halloween Parade, cider pressing, leaf rubbing, and much more in a jam-packed schedule of Hoorah activities. Get your Halloween Hoorah tickets today.
