Provincial Giant Pumpkin Festival: September 22nd, 2013
This festival originated from a Neguac citizen who became a follower of giant pumpkin growing in the early nineties. It was in 1995 that Camille Breau initiated the first official weigh off with three participants and about twenty spectators.
For the first three years, mister Breau and his wife Monique looked after the organization of the competitions but had to obtain the use of the Neguac Sportplex arena to accommodate the ever growing number of participants and spectators. In 1998 they joined forces with the Club Richelieu Féminin of Neguac, (a non profit organization), to help uphold the activity. By this time the festival had become known provincially.
Now associated with the Neguac Golden Age Club since 2005, the festival attracts on the last Sunday of September of each year a crowd estimated to be at over 1,500 spectators from around the province and abroad. Many prizes are given out for totals exceeding $2,500.
At the 2010 weigh off, a new all time record of 1,468 lbs. was set by mister Edmund Hemphill of Mount Pleasant, New Brunswick !! A prize award of $1,000 was given out for this position as well as an extra $500 for having established a new Atlantic Canada record!!! (Maritime Provinces)
If you love competition, comradeship and a good time, the Neguac Giant Pumpkin Provincial Festival is the place for you!
There are, around the world, 47 official weigh-off sites for giant pumpkins. Each of these sites receives an annual ranking by order of importance. The criterion is based on the average weight of their all time top ten pumpkins. The Neguac site represents the province of New Brunswick which is presently in 20th... position!! The Neguac Festival is a member of the internationally renowned GPC (Great Pumpkin Commonwealth) organization.
