This weekend was the annual Pumpkin Pitch/Harvest Festival. Our community just started putting this event in the last five years and it is so much fun! There are tons of free children's activities and a pumpkin pitching contest. What is that? Well, basically teams prepare all year and have huge tre buchets(catapults) that are pretty impressive and high tech. Not just anyone can enter this....you have to have the money, the time and the resources for one of these babies.
Basically they just pitch the pumpkins and see who's goes the furthest. The first year the calculations were a bit off and let's just say that people's houses were hit....quite a ways away.
This year when some pumpkins splattered, pieces flew into the crowd and hit people. :(
But, all in all, it is fun to see them fly!

Saturday was a warm, sunny day and didn't feel like Fall one bit! It is still hard to believe that it is October!
