Kelly Drive Pumpkin Weigh-Off
Ever seen a giant pumpkin? Here's your chance. At the intersection of Kelly Drive and Duluth Street, the Kelly Drive Pumpkin Growers Association is hosting their 16th annual weigh-off event. Neighbors in the area have spent the last few months growing giant pumpkins in their yards. On Oct. 6, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., neighbors can stop by, enjoy a hayride, and gaze upon pumpkins that weigh hundreds of pounds.
