Most Beautiful Pumpkin
This year’s pumpkins at Half Moon Bay’s annual Championship Weigh-Off competition were the biggest ever – over 13 pumpkins weighed in at over 1,000 pounds! The 2010 Half Moon Bay World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off winner is Ron Root of Citrus Heights, California. His winning Giant Pumpkin (pictured top) tipped the scales at an impressive 1,535 pounds (but 123 pounds short of last year’s record-setting 1,658-pounder from Iowa) – tying California’s record of 1,535 pounds.
