The Great Pumpkin Chuck!

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Bring your saggy Jack-o-lanterns or uncarved pumpkin to our 3rd Annual Great Pumpkin Chuck! We will be recruiting teams of Scouts, schools, and other engineer-minded folks from around the area to build their own "chuckers" (catapults, trebuchets, or other mechanical launchers. All simple-machines designs are welcome, no air pressure or explosives please!)

There will be an accuracy and distance competition followed by the chucking of the pumpkins. Watch your seasonal decor fly through the sky and be turned into compost while enjoying some light snacks on the farm.
