With some 545 people signed up – in a variety of age divisions – there was plenty of excitement in Knights Ferry on Sunday, Nov. 4 as the annual Pumpkin Roll hit the community’s Main Street.

Along with the roll, there were a variety of food, beverage and specialty merchandise booths. The Orange Blossom 4-H also had games set up and a petting zoo was offered. Face painting was a popular stop for the youngsters and the kettle corn booth was popping.

The annual Pumpkin Roll is a tradition in Knights Ferry, hosted the Sunday after Halloween each year. Goal is to get your pumpkin closest to the line without going over and without going out of bounds.

Rollers step up to the line one at a time to set the gourd rolling while cheering crowds line both sides of Main Street to share in the festivities.

Here are the winners, as provided by event organizers.

Girls 0-5: Mallory Penaranda; Boys 0-5: Joseph Meyer

Girls 6-12: Ella Madru; Boys 6-12: Reid Grandstaff

Senior Women: Josephine Burrell; Senior Men: Rick Maisel

Teen Girls: Breanna Banks; Teen Boys: Miles Carbaat


Women: Nellie Ashton; Men: Eric Sinkevich.
