2015 CNY Great Pumpkin Festival

Steve & Jeanne Marley's Winning 1543.5 Pound Pumpkin
I spent yesterday photographing the weigh-in for the Central New York Giant Pumpkin Festival.  While it got a late start due to scale problems, there were many entries, with the winning pumpkin a bit smaller than last years, but still over 3/4 of a ton.

I have many more photos & information about the festival as well as links to past festivals at my LakeshoreImages page.

Not much new with traveling.  I did have a recall repair done on the trailer frame, and am currently planning to head south in a couple of weeks.  I haven't made up my mind whether to just head to Florida, or make the 1000 miles longer journey to the Southwest.  I guess I should decide soon!

Until next time -


  1. It's a good time to hit the SW, as the weather cools down.
    The obsessive care given to grow such a monster must be a full time job. What happens to the pumpkin afterwards.

    1. Some are sold for displays, some are feed to animals, but in most cases, the seeds are saved to use for the next season.
