OLD COLORADO CITY, Colo. — Massive gourds rolled their way into Old Colorado City Saturday for the annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off.

In past years, they’ve had pumpkins tipping the scale at over 1,000 pounds.

This year’s first place winner was Marc Sawtelle, whose pumpkin weighed in at 1,231 pounds.

Prizes are given for the largest pumpkins in the 4-state area.

At the festivities, there were also characters from the Wizard of Oz, games, a pumpkin patch and costume contest.
