News @ Noon: Heavyweight Pumpkins Face-Off This Weekend In Stillwater [AUDIO]
STILLWATER - Some massive pumpkins will be in Stillwater this weekend for the annual "Stillwater Harvest Fest".
There's a lot of events happening both tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday, but the main event is the Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off.
Spokesman - and St. Cloud native - Cory Buettner says about 35-40 pumpkins are expected to be entered in the competition.
Buettner says they're hoping for some record-breaking pumpkins.
Stillwater got the World Record pumpkin in 2010, but that's broken since then.
Buettner says the first-place prize is $5,000. And, there's a total of $13,000 in prize money on the line this weekend.
They expect to know the winner by 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Richmond's Scott Steil is among this year's competitors.
