Pumpkin festival photos

We spent a fabulous day at the Royal Victoria Country Park for the pumpkin festival mentioned in a previous post, it was really hot and sunny and not at all windy (usually is quite windy there in the Solent. Anyway the pictures tell the story of the pumpkins, there was also lots of entertainment and some crafting to be done. A fun day out ...

The winning pumpkin weighed 1314lbs (596kg)! And here it is
