There's a new king of pumpkins at the annual Circleville Pumpkin Show in Ohio.
Cecil and Teresa Weston of Circleville won the heaviest pumpkin contest, knocking off a couple that took home the prize the last six years.
Teresa Weston tells the Circleville Herald that the many hours the couple spent in their pumpkin patch turned out to be well worth it. Her husband says he never expected their pumpkin to come out on top.
