Bunbury's Search For The Biggest Pumpkin

Bunbury has embarked on the ultimate hunt for the Biggest Pumpkin.

Every year, the entire town of Bunbury all band together for one cause and that cause is to seek out the biggest pumpkin in the South West and give it the honourary title that it so rightfully deserves.

Whoever brings this behemoth Pumpkin into the spotlight will secure the prize of one hundred dollars, which if you ask me, that is a pretty good prize for essentially an over grown vegetable.

This news has also come out suspiciously close to Halloween, otherwise known as Pumpkin Murder Season. Perhaps this competition is to remind people that we still do love and respect the glorious orange strain of squash for without it we would be without Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes & Roast Pumpkin.

I realize that two of those three example are Americanised things and I have never tried pumpkin pie or a pumpkin spiced latte but none the less, the glorious pumpkin deserves its day in the sun.
