The man that won the Indiana’s Biggest Pumpkin Award this year and set a new state record is John Barenie of Griffith Indiana who grew a pumpkin over 1300 LB. In our house we know him as the man that each year intricately carves out huge pumpkins that he grows in a nearby patch of land, transports a few houses down and after carving them adds lights each year to create a memorizing display.
This year the theme is Monopoly and it starts this Saturday October 29, 2011 and lasts until the pumpkins go bad (about a week). This is well worth a drive for anyone within a half hour or so of Griffith so make sure you get there soon!
We’ve been going for the past few years to see the huge pumpkins some of which are well over 1000LBs
They carve them out and then light them up.
As you can see, the things are huge and really cool. Plus you know it’s free!
If you’re interested you can see them at 917 East Miller, Griffith, IN and this year’s theme is Monopoly.
