Think you found the biggest pumpkin? Think again.
Alex Pomfret from Connecticut just set a local record for the heaviest pumpkin at the Topsfield Fair in New England. His pumpkin weighed in at 2,294.5 pounds.
To put that in perspective, one of the lightest cars on the market, the Mitsubishi Mirage, only weighs 2,018 pounds. Worldwide, the Guinness World Record for Heaviest Pumpkin is held by Mathias Willemijns from Belgium and his 2,624.6-pound pumpkin.
