Our annual Punkin Chunkin Festival will be taking place October 21 and October 22 this year. If you’ve never been before now is the time to take the family and enjoy a fun-filled day of fun! Imagine a man-made machine that has the capacity to throw pumpkins several thousand feet. The “machines” can be anything from slingshots, catapults, centrifugal, trebuchets or a pneumatic cannon. This competition has competitors coming from three states and prizes are awarded at the end of the day. The event is sponsored by the Clay County Chamber of Commerce and includes a Chili Cooking Contest, all the pumpkin made food you could ever imagine, live music, games, craft vendors, beer and wine tents and exhibits. Additionally, there will be bouncy tents, rock-wall climbing, bungee jumps and zip lines. So round up the family and come to the Punkin Chunkin.
Admission: $3.00 parking. $5.00 admission; Children 5 – 10 $1.00; children under 5 free.
