Mark Sipes' 260-pound Atlantic Giant pumpkin gets the top spot in a colorful autumn display at his home near Mc- Connellsburg. Sipes says growing big pumpkins is a lot of fun but requires work and dedication. He should know; he's grown his fair share of the big guys. This year's pumpkin measures 100 inches around and has a vine length of about 50 feet. Sipes hopes to grow an even bigger pumpkin next year. 001p1_xlg.jpg
