An $1800 cash prize is no joke. That's the first place prize, but over $4000 will be awarded to large pumpkin growers. They will be transporting their biggest and best to Fort Collins for a chance to win and have some fun. The public is invited to join in the celebration.

The 2019 Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off & Fall Jamboree is Saturday, October 12 at the Fort Collins Nursery from 11 am to 3 pm. Watch the intense process of the big pumpkins being weighed, while enjoying a beer. Other activities for the family include pumpkin bowling, face painting, hay rides and lawn games.
