Off to the races: Farmers market hosts annual speedy zucchini contest | Photo Gallery

The bigger, better latest round of the annual zucchini races returned to the Bainbridge Island Farmers Market on Saturday, Sept. 23.

Open to public, business and group entries, this farm-to-finish line battle saw contestants modify and customize zucchinis of all sizes and launch them down a small race track in search of glory.

Sizes, shapes and themes aplenty graced the track on the lawn outside Bainbridge Performing Arts as a bounty of stellar squash speedsters took center stage.

The Review’s own Luciano Marano was there, camera in-hand, looking to capture all the awesome action. His favorite shots are collected here.
