Burlington Pumpkin Regatta - Part 2

Burlington, VT - In addition to the Pumpkin Regatta there was other things happening on shore. Making an appearance was Miss Vermont Teen USA - Shelby Layne Gregorie and Miss Vermont USA - Nydelis Ortiz.

This girl was doing her best Chris Angel impression...no just kidding...she was practicing her dance moves for a show later in the day.

There was vendors selling their wares; here is Vermont Pickle. In addition to pickles made of cucumbers they had pickled carrots. I especially liked the "Hot Carrots".

I honed in on the Maple Doughnuts at the Palmer's Sugar House booth when I first got there...awesome.

They had some games to play there also, pumpkin sweeping anyone?

There were also crafts to do such as paper hat making run by Davis Studio.

There was also a scarecrow contest.

It's Butterfly Dog. People brought their pets for the Best Dressed Pet Contest. I tried to take a photo of a dog dressed like a pumpkin but the owner started to yell at me, she did not want me to take a photo of the dog. Um, it is a dog dressed as a pumpkin in public...that just begs for a photo.

These two "Cow People" were paddlers sponsored by Ben and Jerry's.

It's Helga the two fisted cell phone user.

In addition to the other festivities there were Pie Eating Contests.

It was messy!
