Feel the buzz of friendly competition as participants from all around northeastern Oklahoma bring their finest contraptions for launching pumpkins as far as possible. Grab a bite to eat as you watch the competition and make sure to take the time to stroll the charming streets of Vinita. Besides the high-flying competition, guests can also take part in arts and crafts, pumpkin bowling, pumpkin decorating, face painting and archery. A chili cook-off and costume contest will round out all the fall fun at this community celebration.
