Rainy River Giant Pumpkin Festival organizer Val Moor noted the weight of the final pumpkin to be weighed as a crowd gathered around it during the festival on Saturday. The pumpkin, grown by Jim Mills, weighed in at 714 pounds, making it the grand-prize winner for the festival this year. Festival-goers enjoyed a break in the rainy, cloudy weather as they checked out the offerings at Hannam Park. See more photos A10.
