You may have carved one, used one to make a lantern or even eaten one but here's one man with a really unusual use for a pumpkin.
Artist Dmitri Galitzine has set not one, but two bizarre records, in a boat made out of a massive hollowed out pumpkin.
He set a record for paddling 100 metres in less than three minutes in Portsmouth harbour.
Then he raised the bar a bit higher and modified the boat to make it motorised.
He motored off in the 'souped up' pumpkin crossing the Solent to the Isle of Wight.
See his amazing adventure.
