(KUTV) Some of Utah's largest pumpkins were on display today for the 26th Annual Utah Giant Pumpkin Grower's weigh-off.

All the competing pumpkins were grown during the past 100 days. Some grow as much as 50lbs. per day.

Officials have to use cranes to lift them from the ground onto the scale.

The state record for a pumpkin is 1,817lbs. That record was not broken today.
