Buzz Pinkham shouts during the motorized competition at the fourth annual Damariscotta Pumpkinfest Regatta, on Oct. 11 in Damariscotta, Maine. Pinkham and a friend came up with the idea for a race while looking for something to do with a 700-pound pumpkin they had shown at a county fair. They hollowed it out, attached a motor, and launched what has become a wacky race that now attracts more than a thousand people to town.
