Second Saturday film Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex

October 14, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

“Lords of the Gourd”, will be shown at 1 and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14. It follows the trials and tribulations of several contestants in the annual giant pumpkin growing competition held in Cooperstown, N.Y. Moisture and nutrients must be provided, and the growers battle hungry rodents, insects and even human troublemakers. Will the prize pumpkin surpass the 1000-pound mark, or even turn out to be a 1,500-pound world record breaker? The 60-minute film is a production of Radio Pictures in association with PBS. Pumpkins are among the crops domesticated and cultivated in the Americas during prehistoric times and seeds of pumpkins and squash have been found in the archaeological record. MORE INFORMATION
