Pumpkins galore

Kendra Trenchard, above left, posed with her prize-winning pumpkin Saturday at the Rainy River Giant Pumpkin Festival. The eight-year-old’s pumpkin weighed in at 399 lbs. which put her in second place for the junior category, and the second largest pumpkin overall at the festival. Above right, Ken Trenchard, left, and Jacob Leininger kept an eye on the scale as they maneuvered one of the pumpkins to be lifted and weighed on Saturday. Plenty of people turned out to enjoy a rare spot of sunshine, along with tables of the biggest, best and oddest vegetables Rainy River District has to offer. The annual event also featured plenty of food and market vendors to offer up fun for the whole family.
