CEDARBURG, Wis. (WCCO) — A giant pumpkin is bringing a “ton” of excitement to a small Wisconsin town.
The massive pumpkin broke a record at the Cedarburg Wine and Harvest Festival. It weighed in at more than 2,000 pounds and is now the biggest pumpkin of record in North America.
Gene McMullen grew it, and officials say this is actually his second year in a row of beating his own record. Last year, his pumpkin came in at around sixteen hundred pounds.
