11th Annual Pumpkin Smash Festival
November 2 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Annual Pumpkin SMASH happens the 1st Saturday after Halloween in Clear Creek County. #DONTTRASHITSMASHIT
Scraps-to-Soil holds the Pumpkin SMASH each year after Halloween to explore composting and ways to contribute less to the waste stream. We get “hands-on” with tons of techniques for pulverizing pumpkins into pieces, including the Gallagher mallets, Louisville Sluggers, the Trebuchet launcher, and the SlingShot. No matter the smash technique you choose, you will contribute to the continuance of a community-wide composting crusade.
There will be plenty of food and drinks, contests, raffles, games, and opportunities to learn about composting and other ways to live more sustainably. The event is FREE for kids to attend and all are welcome. Bring your own Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkins from Halloween to be SMASHed! There will also be leftover pumpkins for sale – so just show up ready to SMASH!
Sure, it’s a ton of fun, but a great deal of effort goes into pulling off the Pumpkin SMASH! It is a volunteer-driven event, and WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you would like to volunteer at the event or help with the planning and preparation, please contact us via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook at Scraps-to-Soil, Neighborhood Compost Club. Thank you for your support!
