Adam Soto celebrates Floydada, pumpkin capital of Texas

FLOYDADA, TX (KCBD) - Pumpkins are everywhere in Floydada. Driving through, you can see pumpkins sitting on street corners and hanging from local businesses - and that's all thanks to one man.

Adam Soto is the owner of Advance Coatings Unlimited and has built 16 and-a-half pumpkins to date.

They come in all different shapes and sizes and take about a week to build.

But Adam says they're worth every penny.

"It's made out of fiberglass and gel coat. I used bondo to bond them on the outside and of course the finishing product that you see in the background is actually base coat, clear coat - it's what you use on automobiles," Soto said.

Adam says every pumpkin he makes is his favorite, but the one with the most character is in front of Ace Hardware wearing a red vest.
