World’s Largest Pumpkin

Roland’s Large Pumpkin is a tribute to one of Roland’s outstanding citizens and a long time member and supporter of 4-H. Known for his ability to grow large pumpkins, Edgar VanWyck made the Guinness World Book of Records for the largest pumpkin in 1977. In 2007, the Giant Pumpkin was refurbished through the generous donation of manpower and funding by the Hampton, Save-A-Landmark program.
