Description

Every year, pumpkins fall from the sky in Delaware. Held over the first full weekend after Halloween in a vast field near Bridgeville, the World Championship Punkin Chunkin is centered around tossing America’s favorite orange gourds as far as possible with the help of such weird homemade contraptions as slingshots, catapults, centrifugals and cannons. Organized by the World Championship Punkin Chunkin Association (yes, there is such a thing), the contest is highly competitive and has grown into one of the state's largest gatherings since its start back in 1986.
