Giant Pumpkins to highlight harvest bash
A giant pumpkin contest is one big way Pawnee City is making its new annual event stand out and draw in people from out of town.
The second annual Harvest Bash will be in downtown Pawnee City on Saturday.
Sponsors pooled $5,000 to be awarded for the biggest giant pumpkins, field pumpkins and watermelons.
At the 2014 Harvest Bash, an Iowa man took the gold for his 1,104-pound pumpkin.
A Pawnee City resident, Jim Bradbury, is making a run at the giant pumpkin honor for his first time.
“It’s not so much having the ground to do it, it’s having the right place to do it,” Bradbury said. “You don’t need a big area. You just have to know what you’re doing.”
Bradbury said it’s helpful if the ground used for growing pumpkins competitively is “virgin ground,” meaning nothing more than grass has grown in the same spot in recent years.
“We’ve had pretty good weather conditions for growing them, it’s just the fact that they’re so big,” he said. “You have to make sure you’re around it almost all the time.”
