Gourds Guts & Glory

In Windsor, Nova Scotia — birthplace of the giant pumpkin — they don’t just grow massive gourds, they race them! Every October, pumpkins are transformed into boats and then paddled across Lake Pesaquid in an all-out race to the finish. Gourds, Guts & Glory is a half-hour special that takes us into the zany world of giant pumpkin racing. Along the way, they’ll reveal their wacky secrets, madcap rituals and crazy antics in their never-ending pursuit of pumpkin glory.
