It's pumpkin time!

Reuben Frias poses with his giant 1,467.5 pound pumpkin on Oct. 3 at the CSD Giant pumpkin Festival in Elk Grove, Calif. Frias took home a first-place prize of $8,805, or $6 a pound. The pumpkin was so big that the transmission on Reuben's truck was wrecked during the 2-hour drive from Napa to Elk Grove, and he had to be towed in with his entry. 'I'm going to use the money to buy a truck,' he said.
