The popular giant pumpkin contest returns to the annual City of Kenosha Fall Festival from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11 at Veterans Memorial Park outside City Hall, 625 52 nd St. Now in its ninth year, the Fall Festival is partnering with the Kenosha Public Market to add food and craft vendors to the event. The market is open to all from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with early shopping hours from 8:30 to 9 a.m. for seniors and people with disabilities. Pick up some fresh produce and check out the fall-themed decorations from vendors. Enjoy some lunch at the event, or take it to-go.

Look for a visit from a certain “Glass Slipper Princess” from the Fairytale Birthday company between 12-2 p.m. She will be available for photos with people and the giant pumpkins. The Kenosha Public Museum will offer kids activities.

Wisconsin Giant Pumpkin Growers will once again host a weigh-off, with prize money for the largest pumpkin. In 2019, the winning pumpkin at the Kenosha contest was John Barlow, with a pumpkin weighing 1334 pounds. He is also the state record holder of a 2,283 pumpkin. Entries will be weighed and measured beginning at noon, with growers competing for prize money and bragging rights. The top prize for the largest pumpkin is $1,500 and a plaque. Ribbons and prize money also will be awarded to runners-up. Sign up for the contest with the Wisconsin Giant Pumpkin Growers representatives between 9-11:30 a.m. For further details on the giant pumpkin contest visit: Wisconsingiantpumpkingrowers.com.
