Charlottetown’s Eddy Shaw took first place for a third straight year in the Giant Pumpkin and Squash Weigh Off at Vesey’s Seeds in York on Saturday.
Shaw won it with a 1,594.5 pound pumpkin.
He says his winning pumpkin wasn’t the biggest he grew this year.
A 1,624-pounder finished first in the Windsor-West Hants Pumpkin Weigh Off in Nova Scotia just over a week ago.
That record pumpkin was not available for the Island competition under the rules.
The Saturday event saw a lot of family activities leading up to the weigh off.
