In a quirky celebration of the fall harvest, participants paddled on Lake Mendota in massive, hollowed-out pumpkins made buoyant by inflated inner tubes in the annual Hoofer Sailing Club Pumpkin Regatta Oct. 10. The event is organized by UW–Madison horticulture professors Irwin Goldman and Jim Nienhuis.
