Massachusetts got 2400+ this year.
They also sell giant pumpkin seeds for $5 per pack (4-5 seeds) to tourists.

I was wondering what they do with them afterward, too. I do not understand the point of this, and how on earth do they get pumpkins to grow this big in the first place??? Why bother??? I do not understand the attraction at all.

Pumpkins are fed to livestock. I'm sure there are plenty of volunteers to eat giant pumpkins.
