Cutting the Vine on the Biggest Pumpkin in Utah
An Ignoble End...for Some
Ed would go on to win this year’s contest, his fruit weighing in at 1491.5 lbs. Runners up in the giant pumpkin contest ended up being hollowed out and as boats in the annual Ginormous Pumpkin Regatta – held this year at the man-made lake in South Jordan’s Daybreak community.
The Regatta draws big crowds. The spectacle of consumed oarsmen and women frantically rowing their directionless ‘vessels’ is pure fun.
At the regatta, Ed Dennis’s champion was not hollowed for the races. It was perched proudly on its pallet, the perfect prop for a thousand selfies.
