On 14 October one lucky winner will be awarded the title of Denmark’s Giant Pumpkin Champion for 2017. In previous years several pumpkins have weighed over 200 kilograms, so come and watch as we find out how high up the scales we’ve gone this year. The ceremony will take place by the Bubble Fountain in front of Nimb at 11.30.

The current Danish record stands at 451.4 kilograms. One of the secrets to growing a giant pumpkin is to wrap it in an eiderdown quilt throughout the summer and fertilize with huge amounts of cow dung. We’re excited to know if any of our participants will break the record this year.
