The fair features agricultural exhibits, too. Some of the coolest are the giant pumpkins that are sure to show up each year. You can spot them in the agricultural displays, at the Planting Patch near the Purple Gate, and often in carving contests near the Pavilion by the Gold Gate. The artists who carve giant pumpkins at the Puyallup Fair put most Halloween jack-o-lanterns to shame!
