Giant Pumpkin Drop

October 10, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Visitors can thrill to the sight of 600# Atlantic Giant Pumpkins being dropped from a 180’ crane onto targets ranging from a local police department’s junked-cruiser to double-decker junked-cars stacked on top of one another! In the green-spirit of recycling, the splattered pumpkin pulp is gathered for eventual pig feed at a local farm, and the previously junked-cars are recycled as scrap metal.

Sponsors: Lafayette Hotels – Boothbay Harbor / Quality Crane Services

The renowned rock band “Nikki Hunt Band” will be performing from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Hunt & Drop, so come early and enjoy their great sound !!

The Giant Pumpkin Drop immediately follows the Pumpkin Hunt.
