20th Annual Punkin' Chunkin'


We all have traditions, rituals to help us transition from the stifling heat of summer to the cool, crisp air of the fall. How many of us can say those traditions include catapulting a pumpkin and seeing it explode when it hits the ground?

Estancia's 20th annual Punkin Chunkin and Fall Festival includes the possibility to team up, build a catapult or other ballistic device and win awards for how far it launches your orange globe, as well as many other activities. With rides, pie, food, art and the crowning of royalty, this festival is fun for all ages. Of course there is a bit of a drive to get there, but who doesn't like seeing the East Mountains in autumn?
