Record set at Oley Valley Community Fair pumpkin weigh-off


An Exeter Township man squashed a record at the Oley Valley Community Fair's "Pumpkin Patch Weigh Off."

Craig Gardecki's pumpkin "Weirdo" weighed in at 1,477 pounds! That beats the previous record of 1,233 pounds, which was set in 2015. Gardecki won the weigh-off for the second year in a row.

You can check out "Weirdo" and the other gourds in the pumpkin patch at the Oley Fire Company Fairgrounds.

The 73rd Oley Valley Community Fair runs through Saturday.
