(NECN) Damariscotta, Maine's Main Street is always packed for Pumpkinfest, but for a few hours the party moves to the harbor.

There competitors transform giant gourds into marginally seaworthy watercraft.

Most quickly find out that pumpkin paddling is not so easy.

The boats are slow and hard to steer, and the rowers often end up very wet.
