Giant Pumpkin Regatta

Ever since Cinderella made riding in a pumpkin seem so chic and Prince-winning, people have been trying to turn enormous pumpkins into transportation vessels. As a result, giant pumpkin regattas are now held from coast to coast in which grown adults carve all the fillings out of truly life-size pumpkins (sometimes using the top as a “helmet”) and paddle their way, inside the pumpkin, down a body of water. There are much-loved competitions in Vermont along Lake Champlain, in Elk Grove, Calif., and Windsor, Canada.
