Not Your Ordinary Pumpkin

Each fall, beginning Columbus Day weekend, Damariscotta, Maine, hosts its annual crowd pleasing Pumpkin Fest.  These not your ordinary pumpkins line the main street and are a real draw for visitors.

Pumpkin FestSome are big, really big, like this one weighing over 1400 pounds.  It must have taken a forklift to raise it!
