Giant pumpkin growers and pumpkin enthusiasts have been planting seeds, watering, and fertilizing and burying vines from spring to fall, as they prepare for their moment in the spot light. Pumpkin growers and backyard gardeners are being invited to bring their heaviest pumpkin out to the South Jersey Pumpkin Show Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off on Sunday, October 14th, at the Salem County Fairgrounds, Woodstown, New Jersey. Festival goers will have an opportunity to meet the growers and walk around the pumpkins and take many pictures. The growers will be on hand to talk about the hard work that goes into growing giant pumpkins and how they save seeds for 2019.
If you’re a pumpkin grower this is a great late season opportunity to show off your prize pumpkin and potentially win a portion of the cash prize money up for grabs.
