New London Man Grows Minnesota Record Pumpkin
STILLWATER, Minn. (AP) – A New London man has set a new record for the heaviest pumpkin ever grown in Minnesota.
However, Revier didn’t win the grand prize. That went to Kevin Marsh of Parker, S.D., who brought a 1,657-pound pumpkin which earned him the $5,000 prize. Revier’s pumpkin came in second.
World record holder Chris Stevens, of New Richmond, Wis., came in third this year with a 1,575-pound pumpkin.
