The annual Punkin' Chuckin' is back!
A variety of machines participate in the Morton contest: catapults, trebuchets, and some whose category needs to be determined upon their arrival. A hand tossed event is offered for those of us who can’t build a machine. Folks of all ages will find something of interest, like the rib eye steak sandwiches, Pumpkin Chili, Pumpkin Funnel Cakes or Ice Cream. Pumpkin, gourds and fall decorations offer a taste of country fun and excitement to the day. Bring your lawn chairs & join us for this different Fall event. PUNKIN CHUCKIN’ - bringing agriculture and engineering together for the fun of it!
Admission- $5.00 per vehicle
