Annual Pumpkin Drop Tomorrow 

Bring your pumpkins to Town Square tomorrow for Mayor Foley’s last annual Pumpkin Drop!

With the help of Jenkintown’s volunteer firefighters, your leftover pumpkins will be ushered one by one aboard a custom-built pumpkin cage, and then hoisted up six stories high on a ladder truck.

The crowd will count down and when the trap door is pulled, the pumpkins fall to the pavement at 50+mph, exploding in a shower of seeds and pumpkin meat. Safe fun for all ages!

The event starts at 3pm Saturday and will last about an hour. If you would like your pumpkin dropped, please also bring a donation of canned or shelf-stable food for Jenkintown’s Loaves and Fishes food bank.

See you there!
