Pumpkin Toss will follow annual Pumpkin Walk Saturday

<strong>LOGAN—</strong> Tuesday is the final day to enjoy North Logan’s annual Pumpkin Walk, and Committee Member Gina Worthen said thousands of people have already enjoyed the popular event.  Although the Pumpkin Walk ends Tuesday night, Worthen said there’s a related-event coming up Saturday, October 27, called the “Pumpkin Toss.”

“We’ve got some kids from USU that are in the mechanical engineering club. They’re building catapults to launch these pumpkins that we use at the Pumpkin Walk to see how far they can go,” Worthen said. “Last year was the first year, and it was a great success. Apparently they had some that went 300 feet and just as high, so it’s literally pumpkin launching.”

Worthen said the Pumpkin Toss starts at noon Saturday at Elk Ridge Park, and those wanting to get involved should call North Logan City parks and recreation department. Along with the catapults built by the engineering students, participants can build their own pumpkin launching devices – as long as no explosives are involved Worthen said.
