More than 30 giant pumpkins made their way to Bauman Farms during the annual event.

The giant pumpkins will be on display at Bauman Farms through Oct. 31. If youve never seen a pumpkin at more than 1,000 pounds, you are in for a surprise and delight. The Farm will have a large selection of pumpkins this size and bigger, making it one of the top weigh-offs in the country.
The Pacific Giant Vegetable Growers association (PGVG.org) oversaw and judged the giant pumpkins and squash at the farm.
