The biggest pumpkins in the world are coming back to New York City!
Weighing in at a over 2,000 pounds, some of the largest pumpkins in the world return to the New York Botanical Gardens (NYBG) this weekend. It’s all thanks to the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth, whose mission involves cultivating “the hobby of growing giant pumpkins throughout the world,” according to their website.
Cared for by exceptional growers, you can check out these colossal pumpkins beginning Saturday, October 24.
This weekend is also the New York Botanical Garden’s official Giant Pumpkin Weekend, which means in addition to taking in these pumpkins in all their glorious wonder, you’ll also get the chance to explore the winding walkway full of gourds and scarecrows on the Great Pumpkin Path across the Conservatory Lawn, enjoy many fun Insta-photo ops, and take in some of the other large pumpkins on view.
