Pumpkin in the Plaza

Guests visiting the Zoo through November 1 will be greeted in the entry plaza by the largest pumpkin ever grown in Oklahoma!

Weighing in at 893 pounds, the gigantic gourd was grown by Dan Snyder of Claremore, OK, and was certified as record-breaking by the Oklahoma Giant Pumpkin Growers Club. The record-breaking pumpkin makes a perfect photo backdrop for fall family photos.
