Pumpkins close to 2,000 pounds will be on display in Saratoga Spa State Park on Sunday. It's the 3rd annual Saratoga Giant Pumpkinfest, which begins at 9am and runs until 5.
About 30-40 massive pumpkins will be on display for the event, which has grown exponentially after only two years. This year's festival is the first to be held in Saratoga Spa State Park near the Lincoln Baths.
Last year the winning pumpkin weighed over 1,700 pounds. This year's prizes total over $8,500. There is no cost to attend, although there is a fee if you enter a pumpkin into the contest.
