Any melon weigh off's that i don't know about? Is the one in Kentucky just a watermelon weigh off or do they have pumpkin division too? Thanks

Kentucky has pumpkins too. They put on a great show for the attendees. The Tennessee State Fair is a fairly good one in early September you probably don't know about. But it is not a GPC event & since the Tennessee Valley Fair in Knoxville went GPC 3 or 4 years ago thanks to David Cantrell, they have been completely upstaged as both events occur at pretty much the same time.

Of course you can go to the GPC list of weigh off history & there it is easy to find all of the events under their big tent.

If you're looking for something nearby, in September, I suggest the following:


Pumpkins included, but it's a comparatively short drive.

Tony the Tennessee State Fair at Nashville and Tennessee Valley Fair at Knoxville are the exact same day and start about 2 hrs a part. Old Washington Farmers Market in South Arkansas is a watermelon only GPC contest.

But like Chris said Kentucky at Roberts Family Farm is a great weigh off. Operation Pumpkin at Hamilton Ohio is another awesome weigh off. Hopefully I'll get to make the trip to the North Carolina State Fair this year.

Did I hear correctly that Frank is bringing Clyde to Robert's Farm this year? Wearing her brand new bloomers?
