Pumpkin hurling was taken to a whole new level at Farmville Parks & Recreation’s First Annual Pumpkin Chunkin’ Festival! Pumpkins weighing between 5 to 10 pounds were propelled through the air using a variety of homemade contraptions including catapults and trebuchets. The competition included 5 adult and youth divisions, dependent on the type of machine used!
