Ottertail Festival drops thousand-pound pumpkin from crane (with video)
Ottertail, MN (WDAY TV) - A new event made for a smashing time at the Ottertail Pumpkin Festival this afternoon.
For the first time, they dropped a 1,000-pound pumpkin from a height of 70 feet.
All that work raising it in the patch, gone in a burst of orange.
It starts as just a tiny seed. But with a little love, it can grow into this.
Joe Werner has been growing giant pumpkins for three years.
