There are very few places one can go to see pumpkins that are actually large enough to be made into Cinderella’s carriage. Festivities will begin Saturday as pumpkins and other fruit growers converge at Doubleday Field parking lot for a weigh-off. Food and merchandise vendors will also be on hand starting at 9 a.m. The weigh-off is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. and will feature growers from all over the northeast region. Last year’s largest pumpkin tipped the scales at 1,509.5 pounds.
Business owners, growers and community members will participate in a series of race heats during the Regatta. Races are scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
Editor says goodbye
This will mark my last week at the Crier. Moving on is bittersweet because I began writing for the newspaper just days after graduating from college. I’ve grown so much here and have been able to meet and get to know so many people in this wonderful community.
I will not be moving out of the area. In fact, I will not be going far at all as I have accepted a position at Leatherstocking Credit Union.
Although getting the news out to all of our readers is a huge responsibility, it has been a pleasure.
