Pumpkinmania! 2011 Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off & Competition, October 22, 2011!

Good afternoon, Pumpkinistas!

I am very happy to announce that this year's Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off & Competition will be held Saturday, October 22, 2011, 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Island View Nursery, 3376 Foothill Road, Carpinteria, CA 93013, (805) 684-0324, website:! This year's weigh-off will be part of Island View Nursery's Fall Festival, so you'll be able to enjoy live music, interesting and fun activities, food, and more in addition to seeing some of the best giant pumpkin growers from Southern California and beyond compete for glory and immortality.

Since the royal couple Prince Andrew and Kate were just visiting the polo grounds next to Island View recently, there's even talk of a Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Look-A-Like Contest to add to the days festivities. All input regarding this idea is welcome.

So, please save the date!
