If you’ve never been to the West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta odds are you’ve never seen anyone sit inside a giant pumpkin let alone race one across a lake dressed as a superhero or the tooth fairy.

Over the last 12 years the award-winning West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta has become Oregon’s best October event. Spectators come from not only  the Pacific Northwest but also from all over the United States and Canada. The event has been featured by a wide variety of local, regional, and national media outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Southwest and Alaska Airlines magazine, AAA Via Magazine, CNN, the Travel Channel, Better Homes and Gardens, HGTV, Food Network Magazine, and much more.

Of course, the Regatta wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Pacific Giant Vegetable Growers! The PGVG and their members are the generous people that supply the pumpkins for the Regatta. For more information about the PGVG, growing giant vegetables, or participating in the Terminator weigh off at the Regatta visit their website at http://www.pgvg.org/.
