Clarence- It was the battle of the great pumpkins at the Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence today.

Local growers gathered to have their pumpkins weighed and compete for prizes.

The pumpkins were so heavy that forklifts had to be used to pick them up.

The top prize for the largest pumpkin was $5000

About a dozen pumpkins were entered into the contest.
