Montgomery Village held its annual Great Pumpkin Race Saturday, where participants decorated their pumpkins with everything from ladybug spots to Redskins colors. They raced their pumpkins, complete with a set of wheels.
More than 90 racers entered the contest. Tara Simmons was the grand champion with her Cookie Monster-decorated pumpkin.
The festival, attended by about 1,300 people, included children’s tennis games, food, live music, and pumpkin judging.
“The event has continued to grow each year, and we’re looking forward to another successful, family fun day next year,” said Mike Conroy, spokesperson for the Montgomery Village Foundation.
