GAYS MILLS, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s largest pumpkins are the latest to suffer from this year’s drought.

Entries and pumpkin weights were down this past weekend at a festival in Anamosa Iowa.

A Wisconsin pumpkin won the event, as John Barlow of Gays Mills brought in a 1,269 pound whopper. But entrants from the Badger State, Iowa, and Minnesota said they were disappointed with their loads.

They blamed the drought and hard growing conditions for the lighter weights and poor color of their pumpkins.
