turns out flat and wide, bring it along.

This class is for the glamour boys and girls of the pumpkin world. We have been criticised in the past for not having a class for beautiful pumpkins, so here it is. If you have grown a perfect specimen whether it is by shapes, size, colour, or organic beauty, bring your pumpkin along to be crowned the prettiest pumpkin.
As the name suggests not all pumpkins are beautiful and we know that pumpkins do not necessarily reflect their owners. So if you have a pumpkin that is deformed and ugly, you may still have a chance to win.
The smallest pumpkin. So you tried but it did not come off, this is the class for you. New class due to popular demand It should look like a pumpkin and must be able to be seen by the naked eye. Awarded at judges discretion.
This class is for the artists amongst you who can turn a pumpkin into a work of art. Imaginations run wild and entrants have included porcupine fish and satirical sculptures of politicians.
This class has proven so popular that we divided it into adults and children’s (under 16) sections. Every great veggie garden has a scarecrow so dress your scarecrow with an original theme; and inject humour and fun to win this class. This class is sponsored by the Little River Craft Station, with a whopping $200 1st prize for the adults section and an impressive $100 1st prize for the childrens section.
These are judged on artistic merit and are divided into three age groups, 0-6 years, 7-9 years and 10-12 years. Children need to bring their decorated pumpkin.
Children are invited to decorate a gumboot. This is open to their imagination with great prizes available for the most beautiful gumboot.
Dress up as a pumpkin or scarecrow!
All adult classes are $5 entry. Children's classes are gold coin donation.
