Area pumpkin shatters world record
A western Wisconsin man has broken the world record for the largest pumpkin ever grown.
Chris Stevens, of New Richmond, Wis., delivered his huge pumpkin to the Stillwater Harvest Fest on Saturday. His pumpkin made it to the scale at about 2 p.m.
When the official weight was announced, 1,810.5 pounds, a huge cheer rose from the gathered crowd. Stevens pumped his fists into the air.
