The pond at Sugar House Park was bobbing with pumpkins Saturday as people like 77-year-old Ross Bowman paddled his "Brigham City Flash" during the 2nd annual Ginormous Pumpkin Regatta. The racers made the dash across the pond dressed like chickens, pirates and other assorted characters. Some of the pumpkin boats topped 1,000 pounds.
