There are two other weigh-offs after these so watch for additional information to come. If you have kids the above two weigh-offs they will love. Lots of games, food, giant pumpkins and activities. If you have never seen a pumpkin over 1,000 pounds these two weigh-offs will the place to be. At Jared's grower Don Young is supposed to be bringing a pumpkin. They have had tough weather in Iowa this year but Don in the past has grown a number of pumpkins over 1,600 pounds and is a really nice guy. You may have seen his giant pumpkin on Conan O'Briens show a few years back get crushed by a monster truck.
At Jared's or Nick's, rumor has it, that a possible state record pumpkin will be brought that may weigh over 1,400 pounds. We will just have to wait and see.
