If you and the family like big pumpkins....and I mean REALLY BIG pumpkins then you have to check out this years Saratoga Giant Pumpkinfest going on Sunday September 29. It's free to go check out these giants of the season and the event starts at 10am at the Saratoga Spa State Park.

I remember when I was a kid growing up in Michigan our neighbor brought us a HUGE pumpkin to carve that year. It was the biggest pumpkin that I'd ever seen....and it was about 75 pounds.....a tiny pumpkin compared to the 1,500+ pound entries you'll see in Saratoga this weekend.

In addition to the giant award winning  pumpkins there will be plenty of things to do with the entire family.  They will have the Adirondack Kid Zone, food vendors, exhibits, and the Spa City Farmers Market.

Last year they had over 40 giant pumpkins from all over the Northeast and they expect even more this year.
