Matt McConkie, member of “Giant Pumpkin Growers of Utah” and current state record holder for having grown the heaviest pumpkin, won’t be entering a pumpkin in this years competition. Instead, he blew one up.

After all his pumpkins cracked this year, which makes the pumpkins rot, he decided to go out with a bang. However, he’ll still be attending the the 11th Annual Utah Giant Pumpkin Growers Weigh Off on September 26th at Thanksgiving Point. He’ll undoubtedly be there to support the other growers in the competition, and to see if he his state record holds up.
