The Gigantic Pumpkin Contest


The Gigantic Pumpkin Contest was started in 2005 and has become an anticipated feature of the Treasure Mountain Festival. The weigh-off will begin at 9:00am at the main stage area.Last year's winner was over 1100 lbs and we hope for an even larger pumpkin this year. 

Again, this year there will be a first, second, and third place winner. The first place winner will be awarded $400.00 and a ribbon, the second place winner will be awarded $200.00 and a ribbon, and $100.00 and a ribbon will go to the third place winner.

After the winners are chosen all remaining pumpkins can be entered in the pumpkin decorating contest. You may decorate your pumpkin in any fashion that you like, and then they will be judged in three categories: prettiest, ugliest, and most original. First place prizes and ribbons will be awarded to these winners.

Even if your pumpkin doesn't grow to enormous dimensions and weight, you can still be a winner by entering the decorating contest. Use a little imagination and you may be surprised when the winners are annouced.The decorating contest starts at 11:00am and ends at 11:30am. Awards will be given for the prettiest, the ugliest, and the most original decorated pumpkins.

The Gigantic Pumpkin winners and decorated pumpkin winners will be announced at 11:30am on the open stage.
