Well they did it! Rio Rancho will now go down in the history books for carving the most pumpkins at one time!
Congratulations are in order for Galloping Grace Youth Ranch, www.ggyr.org! Rio Rancho co-sponsored the Pumpkin Patch carving contest, but GGYR did the massive organizational work! The official count of pumpkins carved at one time was 1,168…. surpassing the record by 200 people! A record that has been held by a town in Canada for over 14 years!
