Pumpkin Fever in Delaware

By Linda Tancs

Ever wonder what happens to all those Halloween pumpkins?  It might surprise you to learn that people from across the country converge east of Bridgeville, Delaware to launch pumpkins into the air during the annual Punkin Chunkin competition in November.  Now through 4 November, teams will use their engineering skills and ingenuity to hurl their pumpkins to the greatest heights.  A nationally recognized event, a share of the proceeds is earmarked for charitable giving.  What better reason is there to chunk than that!
