It’s the big pumpkin drop for the city’s annual giant pumpkin fest.
Every year, plump-pumpkin growers from across the northeast compete at the festival held at the city center, where we’re told the gourds can end up weighing more than a thousand pounds.

This year’s free event is set for Saturday, September 24th. The family fun kicks off at 9 a.m.
