The annual Pittsburgh Monster Pumpkin Festival isn't happening this year due to COVID-19, but that doesn't mean the Halloween fun has to stop. Beginning on October 30 and running through November 5, the 'Monongahela Monster' is taking over Pittsburgh's North Side.

Instead of the normal Pittsburgh Monster Pumpkin Festivals, which includes pumpkin pie eating contests, pumpkin boat races, and more, the festivals' organizers are creating an epic drive-by exhibit of Dill's Atlantic Giants, which, according to the festival website, are the "most prestigious breed of pumpkins on the planet". The free exhibit will be located in Gold Parking Lot 1-A near Heinz Field and will extend about half the length of a football field.

In addition to the drive-by exhibit, the festival organizers' are hosting a pumpkin drop to raise money for Project Bundle Up and a virtual 'Costume Caper' 5K. For more information, check out the festival website, and let the fall festivities begin!
