Go big or gourd home

TRENTON, Mich. – This weekend is the most likely time for families to hunt down the perfect pumpkin.

A family in Trenton said they always try to find a large pumpkin for Halloween and this year they pumpkin spiced things up with a 620 pound winter squash -- roughly the same weight as a Grizzly Bear.

Jan Zmijewski said her brother grew the pumpkin in Taylor and had to drive the Hallowqueen-sized behemoth to their Trenton home.

They certainly gave their neighbors pumpkin to talk about.
