For the 18th time, Elk Grove Regional Park this weekend will play host to pumpkins weighing almost as much as a Volkswagon Beetle.
The Cosumnes Community Services District's Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival kicked off Saturday with entertainment, a scarecrow contest, student performers and the main event, a giant pumpkin weigh-off.
Above is a collection of posts from attendees, organizers and participants in the festival. Scroll through to see whose pumpkin was the heaviest in the weigh-off. See if your photos made the compilation, and add any extra snapshots by clicking "Upload Photos and Videos" above.
The festival will continue Sunday with a giant pumpkin regatta race and other festivities.
