Heaviest MN Pumpkin Record Broken 10 Oct 11

A New London man has set a new record for the heaviest pumpkin ever grown in Minnesota. Chad Revier broke the record on Saturday at Stillwater’s Harvest Fest with a pumpkin that weighed 1,630 pounds, beating the record he set in 2009 by 51 pounds. Revier did not win the grand prize, however. That went to Kevin Marsh of Parker, South Dakota, whose 1,657-pound pumpkin earned him the $5,000 prize. Revier’s pumpkin came in second.
