Ahoy! The third annual Ginormous Pumpkin Regatta rowed its way across Sugar House Park’s pond on Saturday. Captains of watercrafts made of pumpkins weighing between 500 and 1,000 pounds competed for prizes — awarded to winners and losers. Above • Kyle Fox, left, and Jordan Rogers race to the finish line. Below • Matt McConkie, left, rocks the pumpkin piloted by Lindsay Bench. Aubrey Kruisman, dressed as Spider-Woman, paddles her pumpkin. David Bradley offers his best pirate grin in his hollowed-out ship.
