ANNUAL PUMPKIN DROP THIS SATURDAY IN TOWN SQUARE

Jenkintown pumpkin’s will land with a thud this weekend as the Rec Board presents the annual “Pumpkin Drop” event in Town Square,this Saturday, November 1, at 1pm. (Check recboard.net in case of inclement weather)

Bring your used jack-o-lanterns to Town Square and watch them be hoisted up 105 feet in the air by a firetruck ladder in the Borough’s Pumpkin Drop Cage — the only one known to exist in the world. At maximum altitude the trap door opens and the pumpkins crash to the pavement below.

The destroyed pumpkins, and any others brought to the square, will be composted courtesy of Jenkintown’s Public Works Department.
