The Vinita Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the 5th annual Route 66 Punkin Chunkin Festival. The public is invited to watch as teams launch pumpkins through the air.

The challenge is simple: who can chunk a pumpkin the farthest. Air cannons, catapults, and trebuchets (among other machines) will all be found on the firing line. Categories will include youth, amateur, professional, and air cannon, meaning multiple teams will proudly get to call themselves chunker champions. The event is a great opportunity for kids of all ages to build something with their hands and engage in some friendly competition.

Tickets: General admission is $5, kids under the age of 4 get in free. Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.
