Descrizione

With a look of apprehension, a blond woman clad in a wetsuit wobbles her way onto a lake in western Germany in a huge, hollowed-out vegetable.

Paddle held aloft, she's a contestant in the Krewelshofer lake's annual pumpkin race, held for the third time on Wednesday over a 35-meter (115-ft) course.

Grown specially for the race, the pumpkins must weigh at least 250 kilograms (550 pounds) and, to minimize the risk of capsizing, more for heavier participants.

The fastest racers in six categories get 200 euros ($230) in prize money, or 300 euros if they paddled in their own pumpkins - enough to buy a perfect pumpkin for next year.
