It may look like he raided Charlie Brown’s pumpkin patch, but a 10-year-old Prior Lake boy gets all the credit for raising one of the biggest pumpkins at this year’s Minnesota State Fair.

Scott Gray took third place in the youth division of the Giant Pumpkin Contest. For his 252-pound gourd, he gets a large ribbon and a prize of $40.

Scott says he’s placed at the fair in two previous years, but this is his largest pumpkin yet.
