GROW Hosts 15th Annual Pumpkin Guess-A-Roo

How much is that giant pumpkin in the window at GROW The Produce Shop? If you can guess how much it weighs, it can be yours, during GROW's 15th annual Great Pumpkin Guess-A-Roo contest.

The bright orange behemoth sits just inside the front window at GROW. Check it out (no lifting allowed!), write your guess and your contact information on a piece of paper, and submit it.

On Friday, October 30, GROW will determine the closest guess and deliver it to that person's house.

The contest is always entertaining, said
GROW owner Barry Fisher, who added that he has loved seeing little kids come in and make outlandish guesses through the years ("4,000 pounds?"). 

Fisher added, "The best was a little boy who measured the height of the pumpkin putting one fist on top of the other until he had the number of 'fists' high: 32. He then said, 'My fist weights 1 lb, so the pumpkin weighs 32 lbs.'  I wanted to load it into his car that second."

Last year, the winning guess came from a boy in Hermosa Beach. He had been entering for three years, and apparently the third time was the charm.

Will this year be *your* year?
