Bill Neptune of New Concord stands in front of his record setting 1,503 pound King Pumpkin, which took first place at this year's Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. Neptune's giant squash was 328 pounds larger than last year's biggest pumpkin and 214 pounds larger than any pumpkin ever displayed in Barnesville.
