In this post I have photos and video from the Great Pumpkin Carnival 2013 held in Hamilton Gardens on the 7th of April.  A great day for giant pumpkins in all shapes and sizes.

Tim Harris raised the bar this year after winning last years event with a 290kg pumpkin, he rocked up with 3 massive pumpkins the heaviest being 577kg’s.  Check out the weigh in of that pumpkin in the video below.

As well as the video, here are all the photos of the event can be seen on the photo page.

Thank you

A big thank you to everyone that turned up to either compete in one of the categories or to check out the event.  None of this would have been possible without all the help from the great sponsors we had.  We learnt a lot, and will be trying new things next year and hopefully implementing some new ideas.
