The famed pumpkin pyramid, always located in the heart of the Pumpkin Show, has received a rework in time for the 103rd show. The job was a joint effort by the Pumpkin Show Inc. and a group of welding technology students at Pickaway Ross Career and Technology Center.
Under the direction of Tommy Collier, welding instructor at Pickaway Ross, students made a design, mounted the pyramid onto a wheeled trailer, fastened a towing hitch, installed stabilizer jacks, and welded all the parts together for strength and durability.
Brandon Hart was the lead student on the team and was assisted by Burman Detty. Dakota Waggoner and Cody Hettinger assisted in the early stages of the project.
