The Pumpkin Blast is a Pumpkin Launching Competition to be held at Tate Farms. Teams of up to 4 members are invited to build devices to launch pumpkins.  Teams will be judged for distance and accuracy. There will also be a Judges’ Award, including votes from the spectators, for the best designed devices.


Please read the rules carefully. If you have questions that are not addressed within them, please email us. Access to the launching area will include a dirt path into the field. Please ensure that you have adequate and safe transportation for your device! Also, pumpkins for launching will be provided by Tate Farms on the day of the event, this is included in the cost of registration. As the Pumpkin Blast draws closer, we will post more details on device drop-off, event day registration and pumpkin pick-up. Keep checking back here, and on the Facebook page, for updates.
