We put up a poll for the weekend in an effort to find out which is the better event: the Zucchini Fest or the Pumpkin Show.
Which event is better?

And, jeez, you guys really like the pumpkin show. Not only was this one of our highest voted polls and most retweeted, it was also one of the most resounding victories.
In case you are (sadly) unaware, the Pumpkin Show is an annual event in Circleville, OH, celebrating the wonders of, you guessed it, the pumpkin! Complete with competitions for the biggest pumpkin (they’re huge) and the most perfect pumpkin, plus a thousand (okay, I’m exaggerating) types of pumpkin-themed food, it’s definitely bomb as hell. However, when I put the poll up, I thought maybe the closer proximity of the Zucchini Fest might make this a little closer. It wasn’t. It was a massacre.
In case you wanted more details on the Pumpkin Show, here’s their website which can answer a lot more questions than I can.
