The Annual Giant Pumpkin Regatta returns to Lake Mendota to herald the beginning of fall.

Have you ever paddled on Lake Mendota in a pumpkin? This is your chance to be a pumpkin pilot! The UW-Madison Department of Horticulture grew some delightfully large pumpkins this year and The Wisconsin Hoofer Sailing Club has hollowed them out to turn them into paddlecraft! Learn more about this annual tradition here. No matter if you come to paddle or come to cheer, you'll have a great time!

The paddling starts at noon. Paddling is open to those 18+ and is first come, first served.
