SMASHING PUMPKINS - NOT THE BAND
Friends of ours, who shall remain anonymous and of unknown location, have an annual post-Halloween gathering to 'dispose' of the holiday pumpkins, carved or otherwise. They have built a rather large trebuchet, as shown in the drawing below, and the celebration involves pumpkin flinging, fellowship and much food [and no adult beverages for obvious reasons]. After dark the pumpkins are replaced with gallon milk jugs filled with water and glow sticks - quite the show! Below the drawing is a short video of a 200 foot pumpkin launch, and a close landing to the videographer! Turn up the audio and click to view full screen since dusk was approaching on this particular launch.
