The CNY Great Pumpkin Festival, October 3rd & 4th, 2015

Steve & Jeanne Marley - 1543.5 lbs



This years Central New York Great Pumpkin Festival started out cool, but without rain. It was a slow start because of problems with the scale, but it was fixed (at least for awhile) and the weighing started around noon. About 2/3rds of the way through it was discovered that the scale had failed again. After fixing it some of the pumpkins & squash were weighed again, so I hope I have the correct photo with the correct weight. A few photos don't show the weight - the digital readout on the scale is strobed faster than the eye can see, however slow enough that a camera can take a photo while it is off. Unfortunately, a few are shot that way. A few show a different weight than the "official" weight - the scale moves around by a pound or two. In any case, here are some photos of the event & the weighing:
