The annual Roland Pumpkin Fair happened Saturday, October 7th with the big draw always being the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth weigh-off. And this year was especially exciting, because a new Manitoba record was set, with Charlieroland pumpkin fair2 2017 Bernstrom of Lancaster, Minnesota crowned Champion with a giant pumpkin weighing 1,498.5 pounds.


The previous record of 1,379.5 pounds had stood since 2011. I had the pleasure of Mcing the event, and spoke with Charlie about the big win.
