Martha Stewart's great pumpkin ride

Martha Stewart will head north this weekend for a Canadian Thanksgiving festival in which she will take the helm of an enormous pumpkin for a trip across a chilly lake, the Associated Press reported today.

A spokesperson for Stewart announced this morning that the lifestyle guru has secured a permit for her excursion to Windsor, Nova Scotia, which will be one of Stewart's first trips out of the country since she was released from house arrest on September 1. Due to her ex-con status, Stewart had some trouble securing the permit and had announced Wednesday that she would not be making the trip to Canada.

Stewart's luck changed, however, and Canadian Immigration Minister Joe Volpe confirmed to the Canadian Press that Stewart has been issued a temporary residency permit so that she can participate in the festival. Contestants in the annual pumpkin regatta board giant, hollowed-out pumpkins for a paddling race across Windsor's Lake Pesaquid.

The race and preceding parade support the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, an organization that fulfills the wishes of children with life-threatening diseases. Stewart will share her pumpkin ride with three young wish recipients.

Clips from the festival will most likely be aired on Martha sometime later this month.
