The winner of the guess the weight of the pumpkin contest was Leo Bauerlein, of Pittsburgh, Pa. His guess of 504 pounds, 2 ounces was just 2 ounces over the correct weight! Bauerlein won a $50 Holiday Valley gift card. There were 450 entries. The pumpkin was grown by Lisa and Dave Williams, of Ellicottville. Rossi, Holiday Valley’s office dog, is shown checking out the giant pumpkin on the slopes.
