8th Annual Pumpkin Launch at Moonshadow Farm
8th Annual Mullin Family Pumpkin Launch
Saturday, November 5, 2-5 p.m.
4300 State Route 370
Yellow Springs, OH
Bring your Jack O'Lantern and set it flying! Our trebuchet is ready to break previous distance records.
A special extra this year: we will have an author signing by Paul's brother Michael. His debut novel, Ashfall, will be released in October and may be on the bestseller list by November. It's fun to have a book-signing at the farm since you will find some familiar references to it in the book.
One other bit of fun this year will be multiple potato cannons competing during the trebuchet breaks. Bring your earplugs if you plan to be up close. Old potatoes are appreciated for ammunition.
