PGPGA is a collaboration of giant pumpkin growers and enthusiasts in Pennsylvania and beyond, sharing ideas, seeds, and giant vegetables! The annual weighoff is held in Altoona, PA every first Saturday in October starting at 10 am. Spectators are free, but if you are planning on bringing an entry please print and complete an entry form for each of your entries and bring it along with your entry by 8-9 am. Also, membership is required this year, so please try to get your dues paid before you arrive at the weighoff. And during the week prior to the weighoff please pre-register on BigPumpkins.com. This really saves a lot of time at the registration table at the weighoff. Thanks and we hope to see you then.
