On October 23, 2011 I attended the Pumpkin Sail at Central Park. It was held at the Harlem Meer near the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center. They take about 50 pumpkins on the sail. The carved pumpkin should be small (5 to 10 pounds) and arrive early to the launch area. Pumpkins that arrive late, are too large, or are not eligible for other reasons are placed on tables for display.
