With the warm weather, it may not feel like fall, but that isn't stopping one community from getting into the autumn spirit. 

A giant pumpkin that weighs over 1,500 pounds will be on display at Valley View Farms on York Road Wednesday morning. 

If you can't make it on Wednesday, no worries! The pumpkin will be on display until Halloween. 

This year's pumpkin is named William C. Gourd, also known as 'Wild Bill from Cockeysville'. This is in tribute to Billy Foard, who is the late co-founder of Valley View Farms. 

The store is open seven days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. if you want to visit.
