Tailem Bend Giant Pumpkin Growing Competition this Sunday, April 23

Competitors will put their best pumpkin forward this Sunday in the hope of claiming the inaugural heaviest pumpkin prize.

Tailem Bend will host its first Giant Pumpkin Growing Competition at the Willow Street Precinct from 1pm to raise awareness for suicide prevention in the Coorong district.

Prizes will also be on offer for zucchini growers, after 25 per cent of pumpkin seeds distributed to the public were accidentally zucchini seeds.
