There’s just a little time left to go out and get those pumpkins so your kids can carve Jack-o-Lanterns for Halloween. While you’re shopping at supermarkets, farmers’ markets, and roadside stands for the biggest, roundest gourd of all, you might wonder, “Where can I get gigantic pumpkins in Texas?”
Although everything is bigger in Texas, the Lone Star State falls short in the gigantic pumpkins department. This year’s biggest pumpkin was grown by Minnesota farmer Travis Gienger. His behemoth pumpkin weighed in at 2749 pounds at the 50th World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off in Half Moon Bay, California. This monster gourd was more than 7.5 feet wide and posed a tight fit for the scale.
However, you can find a pumpkin that will actually fit into your car and have a good time doing it at markets all over Texas. So, locate the pumpkin of your dreams (OK, your kids’ dreams) when you RESERVE YOUR STAY AT YOUR FAVORITE QUALITY RV RESORTS DESTINATION.
