BurlingtonPumpkinRace_VTblog.jpgNo boat needed for this water race. Just one hollowed out pumpkin! The second annual Giant Pumpkin Regatta and Festival features local business leaders, students, and others racing in giant hollowed-out gourds on Lake Champlain in a competition of size and speed. Yes, the vessels are hollowed out gourds. The event includes food vendors, pie eating contests, pet costume contests, and entertainment for all ages on the picturesque Burlington, Vt., waterfront. Regatta is Sunday, Oct. 11. For details, visit online.
