#TRENDYTUESDAY #PUMPKINBOATWritten by Brittany
Londoner Tom Pearcy recently set a Guinness World Record by sailing in the world's largest pumpkin boat. He carved the boat out of a 1,364-pound pumpkin. Tom received cheers as his maiden voyage began. He said, "Roman conquerors, Viking invaders, medieval knights, Victorian industrialists and now tourists have all sailed down York's River Ouse. But never in York's 2000 year history has anyone ever rowed a giant pumpkin!"
