We all know that Burlington Vermont is famous for exquisite lakefront real estate with Adirondack views and incredible sunsets. But this fall, Sports Illustrated has given Burlington a new claim to fame: the site of the most ridiculous competition, the Burlington Vermont Giant Pumpkin Regatta.
Yes, it is a boat race, but each boat is a carved and decorated giant pumpkin, raced like a kayak. The Giant Pumpkin Regatta & Festival is a benefit for a youth leadership program for area high school students run by Linking Learning to Life and the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce
