Pumpkins whiz thousands of feet through the air from catapults, air cannons, trebuchets, and other mighty machines. Teams even from Michigan traipse to the Blue Ridge Mountains to compete with world champion chunkers. It's a big deal if you've never seen flying, flipping, exploding pumpkins. What a way to haunt in Halloween!
Besides the Punkin Chunkin, other activities are held during this shindig. There's a pumpkin pie eating contest with whipped cream smearing the chins and nostrils of competitors.
Additionally, there's a zipline, airplane rides, live entertainment, a climbing wall, carnival rides, a kidzone with fun games, lots of food, arts and crafts.
Everyone young or old, will find plenty to stimulate the senses at this sensational Punkin Chunkin.

You put on a show
dancing over the mountaintops
dressed in bright garments
of orange, lemon, and cranberry grape.
You are a sassy month,
stopping carloads of folks
flocking to view the fall foliage;
you twist, turn, and somersault
with rain showers of leaves.
You are a naughty child!
On Halloween you deck
out in spooky costumes,
throughout the eerie night;
the barn owl resounding,
Hoot! Hoot! Hoot!
