Battle of MI's great pumpkin gladiators

Oct 29, 2014

That's a big pumpkin at the Harnica Pumpkin Farm and Great Pumpkin Weigh-off.

Just in time for Halloween week, Current State’s Peter Whorf brings us this monstrous tale. It's a tale of competitive pumpkin growing in Michigan.

A Michigan-record pumpkin was grown by Holly resident Mark Clementz this year. The gourd weighed in at 1,947 pounds, breaking the previous record set by Dundee's John Harnica just days earlier. We hear from Clementz and Harnica about what made 2014 the year for great pumpkins.
