ANNAPOLIS, Md. — We've all seen Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin and now there's a chance to see one in person.

Annapolis has three huge pumpkins around town.

They're at Saint Anne's Church, outside the Lemongrass Restaurant and Downtown at the City Dock.

The pumpkins come in between 1,000 and 1,500 pounds.

They're in town to give people more things to do for Halloween outside.

"We've tried before, we're not very handy with it, but the kids have grown some in the past, never like this though. Well, I tried carving a pumpkin last night and that didn't work out real well and that was like have the size of that and I think that would be pretty hard,

Local restaurants have joined to give gift cards to those who post pictures of the pumpkins.

Just post on Facebook or Instagram and use #greatAnnapolisPumpkin for a chance to win.
