Not gonna lie. When my friend told me she was going to be in a boat race riding her pumpkin, I thought she was insane. Yes, she grew a humongous pumpkin, hollowed it out, painted it, and sat inside it and rowed it in a race. The Giant Pumpkin Regatta in Sugarhouse Park.
When I told Dave about the event prior to going, he thought I meant that people were going to put normal-sized pumpkins in the water and race them from shore. No, I insisted, people are going to be IN the pumpkins.
The kids were thrilled and it was a great fall activity. Still can’t believe this is really a thing.
