Cra-Z Pumpkins finishes fourth in South Dakota competition
October 3, 2019
A giant pumpkin, weighing 966 pounds, was hauled from its growing spot, south of Ewing, to a competition in Rapid City over the weekend.
Grown by Tamra and Larry Ziems, the pumpkin placed fourth in the 11th annual Downtown Pumpkin Festival.
Monday, the pumpkin traveled to its new - and final - home at Martin's Hillside Orchard in Ceresco.
This weekend, Tamra said they will haul produce to a competition in Harrisburg, South Dakota, sanctioned by The Great Pumpkin Commonwealth.
"We're taking a smaller pumpkin and a green squash. Each should be about 500 pounds," she said.
