Giant Pumpkin Reaps Great Rewards

Neighbors and friends stopped at Craig Watry’s home to help him harvest his pumpkin on Friday, Sept. 14.
It was no easy task.
After all, the pumpkin weighted 767 pounds.
Watry used large ropes to create a strap system to lift the pumpkin with a forklift.
As cars drove by the pumpkin, located in front of Watry’s house on Moraine Drive in the Town of Kewaskum, they paused to see what the commotion was. Motorcyclists stopped to take selfies with the large gourd.
