Big Pumpkin Competition

A big well done to all the kids who participated in the Big Pumpkin Growing Contest this year at Mitre 10 Mega Kapiti! We had some amazing results and a awesome day judging! The biggest pumpkin we had here at MEGA Kapiti weighed a whooping 51KG grown by 4year old Paige Naylor, we also had Hayden Sale age 10 taking out the Ugliest Pumpkin Category and Tighe Davis age 6 winning Best Dressed with his pumkin dressed as a Minion off Dispicable Me. Each winner was presented with a medal and a $50 Prezzy Card! Paige also got the chance to enter her pumpkin into the National Competition but was unfortunetly beaten by a pumpkin weighing in at an amazing 161KG
