The Vinita Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the 5th annual Route 66 Punkin Chunkin Festival. The public is invited to watch as teams launch pumpkins through the air at John’s Tractor Works. Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. The challenge is simple: who can chunk a pumpkin the farthest. Catapults and trebuchets (among other machines) will all be found on the firing line. Categories will include youth, amateur, and professional, meaning multiple teams will proudly get to call themselves chunker champions. The event is a great opportunity for kids of all ages to build something with their hands and engage in some friendly competition. The Punkin Chunkin is more than a high-flying competition. It’s a fun-filled festival including food trucks, arts and crafts, and entertainment. A new feature this year is a Dutch oven cooking competition. Free activities for the kids include pumpkin bowling, pumpkin decorating, face painting, and more.
