Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada --- Pumpkins aren't really known for their hydrodynamics..or for their ability to float for that matter.

But that didn't stop people from racing them across a lake in the 14th annual Pumpkin Regatta.

Winsor claims to be the home of the giant pumpkin...which sounds like a challange.

People had decorated their PVC's --that's personal vegetable craft -- in different colors.

It was all for a good cause, to raise money for the Children's Wish foundation.
