Record-Setting Pumpkins Possible at Anamosa Pumpkinfest

giant-pumpkin“If You Grow It, They Will Come”. That’s the theme for this weekend’s Anamosa Pumpkinfest. And that theme may be rather appropriate this year. Organizer Greg Norlin says the word around town is there could be some record-setting pumpkins this year at Saturday’s Ryan Norlin Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off.

Saturday’s events start out with the 5K Run with registration at 7 am at Wapsipinicon State Park. You’ll also find food and craft vendors on Main Street and the parade take place at 2:15. Norlin says Pumpkinfest is a great way to kick off the fall season.
