How many ways can you demolish a pumpkin? Well Cherry Crest is on a quest to find out. This year the festival falls on Halloween, so we’ll be taking our left over pumpkins and transforming the farm into a frenzy of pumpkin destruction! Throwing, launching, hurling, rolling, dropping & smashing are all part of the festivities of our fourth annual Pumpkin Madness Festival. Bring your pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns from home or use some of our leftover stash, while supplies last.
Reverse Pumpkin Darts
Throwing pumpkins at reverse dart board Reverse Pumpkin Darts
Instead of throwing darts at pumpkin, you'll be hurling your pumpkin towards a board filled with pointy darts! Aim for the very center... Will your pumpkin stick or fall to the ground in lots of little pieces?
Pumpkin shot put fun festival Pumpkin Shotput
Chuck your pumpkin as far as you can into an open field. We'll mark your spot and at the end of the day the winner in each age category will win a season pass! This competition is open to anyone who wants to join, so we have categories for all ages and abilities!
This bowling alley is just for the youngsters in the crowd (ages 10 & under). This game plays a lot like regular bowling - except competitors will send pumpkins rolling down the lane and crashing into the pins.
The Great Pumpkin Drop
Pumpkin drop from sky high fun festival The Great Pumpkin Drop
Watch in awe as your pumpkin is hurled from the top of our giant boom lift and crashes onto our target below. The bigger the pumpkin - the better the splat! Write something funny on your pumpkin, and our MC just might read it aloud before sending your pumpkin tumbling to the ground.
We will drop a large pumpkin at the end of the day, so stay posted for more details like what time and just how big it might be!
Pumpkin smashing fun festival Pumpkin Smashing
Use our rubber mallets to smash a pumpkin! There's nothing like the squish-squish sound of smashed pumpkins. Even mom and dad can join in the fun!
Pin-the-Face on the Pumpkin
Pin the face on the pumpkin fun festival Pin-the-Face on the Pumpkin
This activity, aimed at the younger kids (ages 10 & under), is sure to get a lot of laughs! Put on the blindfold, have mom or dad spin you around, and see what kind of face you make on the pumpkin. The more times you spin, the sillier the face!
In honor of our pumpkin demolition, we'll also have pumpkin foods for you to devour. Our local fire company brings you every pumpkin food you can think of - Pumpkin Fudge, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Whoopee Pies & more are on the menu. YUM!
Please note: Special festival activities will run from 12:00pm to 5:00pm while pumpkin supplies last. Activities and menu are subject to change.
