Punkin Chunkin Colorado
Every October, the people of Aurora let it fly with the annual Punkin Chunkin Colorado. The idea is to hurl pumpkins through the air as creatively as possible. It is quite amusing to see the various ingenious contraptions designed to launch pumpkins as high as possible. There's also lots more fun at this festival with hayrides, scarecrow making, a pumpkin patch and great live music.
