The 30th annual North Logan Pumpkin Walk is over but now some of the leftover pumpkins will be part of the 5th annual Pumpkin Toss. The toss will be held Saturday, November 7th at Elk Ridge Park, 2500 North 1100 East in North Logan.

Trevor Irish is involved with the Bear River Land Conservancy which is partnering with USU’s American Society of Mechanical Engineers and North Logan in sponsoring the event.

Irish says the event begins at 11 a.m. and he is hoping that at least six teams will be competing for both accuracy and distance and they will also be throwing pumpkins filled with candy to the kids.

“We line up the kids on the sidelines, in the safety zone,” Irish explains. “We fill up a pumpkin full of candy and then we throw the pumpkin with a trebuchet.

“As soon as the pumpkin hits the ground the kids run out and grab the candy. In year’s past they have really enjoyed that. They get really, really excited about it.”

Irish says the event is free and all ages are invited to attend.
