Beat Enormous Pumpkin Record Of 380kg: Issigeac Pumpkin Fair

Beat Enormous Pumpkin Record Of 380kg: Issigeac Pumpkin Fair

Today is our village boot sale ( ).
And afterwards, if you're looking for some heartwarming food, pop in Issigeac, 15mins drive from our village for its Pumpkin Fair and grabb some pumpkin soup (don't forget to bring a container for it) or if you're have a sweet tooth like me, some "milla" (pumpkin cake).

And, you can try your luck at the Giant Pumpking Competition: the 380kg pumpkin has not been beaten so far! Good luck!
