All You Can Carry Pumpkin Challenge

My brooding teenager is too old to dress up and too cool for the family trip to the pumpkin patch, but is always willing to prove everyone he is the best at absolutely everything. The Pike Nurseries “All You Can Carry Pumpkin Challenge” just may be the perfect way to get him in the Halloween spirit as he tries to beat a record.

For $19.99 shoppers can load their arms full of as many classic medium-sized orange pumpkins as they can carry. According to Pike, the record last year was 11 pumpkins at once!
