GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Nine-year-old Travis Gaspar has been growing pumpkins his entire life, but he just had his biggest triumph yet.

He entered his 202-pound pumpkin -- the largest one he's grown -- at Grantoberfest in Grantsburg, Wisconsin, and won third place!

This is Travis' fourth trophy for pumpkins, but the first one in this high of a weight class. He's already looking forward to next year.

KARE 11 caught up with Travis at the Minnesota State Fair, and on Saturday he visited the studio to talk about his latest accomplishment.
