It’s an annual Halloween tradition for the Cloverdale couple

The bigger, the better.

That’s Brooke and Brent Wilhelmson’s idea when they hunt for their massive pumpkin every year.

The Cloverdale couple has made it their goal to find, gut and carve a huge pumpkin every Halloween.

This year their jack-o’-lantern was almost 300 pounds, Brooke says.

The couple’s pumpkin was so huge it had to be gutted, carved and displayed on the back of their black pickup truck.

The final touches were done just in time for trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.

The Wilhelmson’s find their beast of a pumpkin at Abbotsford’s Willow View Farms.

It’s a tradition the couple has had for at least six years.

Why do they do it?

Brooke explains.

“We don’t have kids to take trick or treating so my husband, the biggest kid of all, loves to see the amazement of all the trick-or-treaters that come by each year for the wow factor really.”

Did you carve a huge pumpkin this year? Or maybe just a really cool one?
