Event Description:

Watch as pumpkins are flung across the sky by catapults created by Ivy Tech students. Children of all ages can make their own miniature catapults and trebuchets and decorate their own pumpkins to join the pumpkin flinging fun.

Brilliantly colored orbs and projectiles of carved and painted images will soar across the sky toward targets in Garfield Park. The catapults and trebuchets will be built and festooned by Ivy Tech students, who will be on hand to help paint pumpkins with children. Culinary students will carve pumpkins during the event.
