This year the challenge of growing a giant pumpkin (or miniature) was taken up by Hamilton Mayor Andrew King, who then challenged Mayors from other districts to see who could grow the biggest giant pumpkin. Celebrities for the day are:

Andrew King

Hamilton Mayor

Jan Barnes

Matamata/Piako District Mayor

As well as the Mayors we have some familiar faces and one first timer from the political arena.
