For the early 5-7am news (prior to the actual weighing on Monday, Oct. 14), we'll have several returning champions and top contenders at the Weigh-Off site from 5-7am with pumpkins in tow for early, pre-weighing interviews. Another option would be to set up a segment with a grower tending their patch in the weeks/days leading up to the Weigh-Off.
Press parking will be available adjacent the weigh-off staging area for easy access. We have designated space for satellite trucks and broadcast vehicles with assistance from event staff.
