“We’re excited to welcome the agriculture community, local families, and tourists from around the region back to downtown Saratoga Springs to enjoy a friendly competition to officially kick off Fall this year,” said Todd Shimkus, CCE, President, Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce. “From heaviest pumpkin to longest gourd, you’ll be in awe of the bounteous produce grown right here in the Northeast’s     

Visitors are welcome to stop by the Saratoga Springs City Center Parking Garage for a day of free, family friendly fun beginning at 10 a.m. on September 25. The official weigh-off will begin at 11.
