The record for the heaviest Western Australian pumpkin was smashed at the Dwellingup Pumpkin Festival this afternoon afternoon.
Attendees were in awe of Robert Giumelli’s 361 kilogram pumpkin, that came in first place and beat the state record held by Albany resident Ron Wilson for 16 years.
Robert’s wife Judy Giumelli came in second place, with her pumpkin weighing 293 kilograms.
Louie Della’s 243 kilogram pumpkin came third.
More to come.
