Saturday Oct 20th, 2012 at Sugar House Park in Salt Lake City. It’s the Second Annual Mountain Valley Seed Ginormous Pumpkin Regatta brought to you by Muscle Milk. Some of you might say…”but a regatta is a boat race” and you would be correct. Don’t believe us check out this video of last year’s event. Our partnership with the Utah Giant Pumpkin Growers has provided us with a large selection of 800+ lb pumpkins. YES…pumpkins that are over 800 pounds, one of which is over 1400 lbs and all will be turned into Ginormous boats…and then raced in a pond. Out of our minds??? Why…YES…yes we are.
The first question is…do pumpkins really float? The second might be, who in their right mind would risk life and limb racing a pumpkin for prizes and fame? The answers can be found at Sugar House Park from noon till 2:00 pm this Saturday.
Spectators can share in the fun and prizes from Muscle Milk, Whole Foods, Probar, Mountain Valley Seed Co and Park City Mountain Resort. Come and see the latest edition Subaru from Nate Wade Subaru and spin the wheel of prizes from Chick-fil-A.
Muscle Milk will be providing samples of their muscle building, workout enhancing, shakes. Muscle Milk® is a great-tasting, protein-enhanced functional formula that combines 32 grams of high-quality protein along with premium ingredients to provide sustained energy and recovery for performance and lifestyle. Our pumpkins and our pumpkin captains end our workouts with Muscle Milk.
Whole Foods Sugar House will have regular sized pumpkins on hand. Bring the kids and participate in a pumpkin carving contest for great prizes. Carving starts at 10 and will be judged before the races end at 2. Participants and winners could win gift certificates from Whole Foods to help complete their thanksgiving shopping. There is nothing better than locally grown and certified organic options for your family this year and Whole Foods is the place to satisfy everyone’s tastes for all your classic fall baking needs.
ProBar will have delicious Gluten Free, all natural bars for the first 250 people at the event. Probar is made from the healthiest ingredients on the planet and sooo dang good, you’ll forget all the other bars even existed.
For those of you counting the days till the snow flies, because we ARE…Park City Mountain Resort will be giving away lift passes to some attendees. PCMR is the home of powder hounds whether they are on two sticks or one…with terrain and learn-to-ski packages for all abilities and the sickest board park in the state…we Ride Park City...and you should too.
Our friends from Wasatch Community Gardens will be helping out with growing tips and pumpkin related questions as well as showing off their very own Ginormous Pumpkin grown by their youth program.
As always we welcome you to visit us, ask questions, peek into our working greenhouse or our grow room and see what’s new. We appreciate your ongoing business and desire to be more healthy, feed your family or save the world, even if it’s one Ginormous Pumpkin at a time.
Happy Rowing to all. Here is how to get to Sugar House Park.
