A Riverside resident won big at this years’ Iowa State Fair. David Miller of Riverside came away with first place in the Big Pumpkin Contest after his pumpkin weighed in at 933 pounds.

His oversized pumpkin is doing some traveling now that the fair is over, stopping in Washington yesterday.

He says that other pumpkins he’s growing are on track to surpass 1,000 pounds and he will likely enter them into the Anamosa Pumpkinfest GIANT Pumpkin Weigh-off in Anamosa, Iowa.
