  • Specimen must be grown, cared for, and entered by the weigh-off contestant.
  • Each contestant is limited to having one entry (one pumpkin) weighed.
  • Specimens that have won prizes in any other weigh-off competitions are not eligible.
  • Specimens must be in healthy and undamaged condition, free of rot, holes and cracks through the cavity, chemical residue, and soft spots.
  • To be classified as a pumpkin, specimens must be 75% yellow/orange in color; all others will be classified as squash.
  • The vine must be trimmed to one inch from the stem. No foreign material is permitted in the weighing.


  • All specimens will be weighed without the use of tarps or other carrying devices.
  • Pumpkins will be classified by division based on where the specimen is grown, not the residence of the grower.
  • In the event of a tie, prize money will be distributed equally among the tied parties.
  • Decisions of the judges are final in all cases.
  • The five heaviest pumpkins will remain in Half Moon Bay to be part of a special display at the annual Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival
