Freebie Friday – Take your picture with a Giant Pumpkin
The 2013 All New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off will begin in the Arena at 4 pm in the arena. Pumpkins will start being unloaded at 1 pm. The 2012 Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off held at the Fair was, without a doubt, the most exciting Weigh-Off to date. The world’s first one ton pumpkin, grown by New Englander, Ron Wallace from Greene, RI, weighed in at a whopping 2009 pounds. Topsfield Fair is home to the first ONE TON pumpkin ever grown in the world. Imagine that!
Once this year’s Giant Pumpkins have been weighed, they are available for up-close viewing by the public. Our Grand Prize winner will be homed in it’s display case at the center of the Fruit & Vegetable Barn. Several other pumpkins will be on display in the Arena, behind the show ring. Make sure to check them all out when you visit the 2013 Topsfield Fair! Plus, take a picture of yourself with the pumpkins and share them with us on Facebook and Twitter!
