The sixth annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Ballard Park Sunday, Sept. 23.

The event will also feature a weigh off of giant squashes and gourds from growers across New England. The weigh off reaches farmers in New York and Pennsylvania, too, who come to Ridgefield to compete for a $3,000 prize. The weigh off is scheduled to begin at noon followed by an award ceremony.

In addition to pumpkins and squashes, there will be a pet station with live animals, farm stands, children activities, live music, food trucks and more.
