An annual fall tradition at the New York Botanical Garden, Giant Pumpkin Weekend returns this year to display some of the country’s most massive pumpkins, squashes and gourds. In addition to marveling at their sheer size, visitors will be able to participate in Q&A sessions with the farmers who grew these monstrous fruits and vegetables. There will also be opportunities to pose for photos with these amazing giants at this family-friendly event. The pumpkins are on display through October 31.
