In preparation for Halloween, Nolan Prohaska grew giant pumpkins in his yard at the corner of Ninth and Vine streets.

This photo from early October shows a pair of the big pumpkins resting in the shade of a pine tree.

Prohaska said one weighed 279 pounds and the other topped the scales at 286 pounds.
