NOVA SCOTIA, Canada -- Happy Thanksgiving Day, which it is in Canada.
Yes, the second Monday of October is Canadian Thanksgiving and a time to celebrate with pumpkin, pumpkin boats!
Sure, there's pumpkin pie, or even pumpkin soup, but some "gourd-getters" took their pumpkin obsession to a new level, sea level.
More than 50 people raced their gigantic gourds yesterday in Nova Scotia for the 15th-Annual Pumpkin Regatta.
This race is so famous that Martha Stewart once entered a pumpkin boat.
She was unable to attend after being denied a visa after her prison time.
There are three different classes: motor, paddling and experimental.
Money raised by the event goes toward cancer research.
Many consider the event the highlight of the fall season in Nova Scotia.
