Belgian town hosts its annual pumpkin boat race

Antwerp (Belgium) (AFP) – The pumpkin regatta in Kasterlee (Antwerp) is a unique event in Belgium, a kayaking competition in large hollow-out pumpkins. “Every year we start small pumpkins and every year we get from the bigger pumpkins the seeds and mix them to make every year bigger and bigger pumpkins. This year we have pumpkins of more than 1000 kilos” explains Gert Peeters, the organiser and pumpkin patch owner.
