November 2-4: World Championship Punkin Chunkin (Millsboro, DE)
Halloween is over and your pumpkin is slowly starting to decay. You could throw it in the trash, but what fun would that be? A better way to get rid of it is to join the festivities at the World Championship Punkin Chunkin, where contraptions of all shapes and sizes get ready, aim and fire at breaking world records in the field of pumpkin launching. Aside from the displays of engineering might, there are plenty of cooking festivities, with contests including best presentation and "most use of pumpkin."
