TUALATIN, OR (KPTV) -

Families from all over the US and Canada gathered for West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta Saturday.

Participants in costume paddled giant pumpkins weighing 1,000 pounds across Lake of the Commons in Tualatin.

The event also included music, pumpkin carving, face painting, pie eating contests, and even pumpkin golf and bowling!

"This is such a fun event, this place was jam packed today, it was wall to wall people, and it was a family event, so that just makes it that much more fun," said professional pumpkin carver Tim Pate.
