Halloween: Pumpkin Chuck

You take so much time carving and perfecting your pumpkins every year for Halloween, only to throw them in the trash once November rolls around.

You take so much time carving and perfecting your pumpkins every year for Halloween, only to throw them in the trash once November rolls around. Instead, bring your leftover pumpkins to Stanbery Park for the eighth annual Pumpkin Chuck. Use handmade trebuchets and watch your worthless orange squash fly down the sledding hill. The event also includes a broadcast by WNKU, live music, a Pumpkin Olympics for kids, plenty of food and drink, and a half-mile race. 


Noon-5 p.m. Saturday. $3 chuck your own; $5 chuck someone else’s. 2221 Oxford Ave., Mount Washington, mwcc.org.
