If you are not in the Fall mood, seeing this pumpkin might do the trick.
The biggest pumpkin in the whole state of Florida is right here in Tampa and you can visit it seven days a week. Bearss Grove is a family-run farmers market and is now the home to a 989-pound pumpkin. Charlie Brown would be proud!
