9th Annual Pumpkin Smash Festival

November 4, 2017

Idaho Springs, CO

Scraps-to-Soil holds the Pumpkin SMASH each year after Halloween to explore composting and ways to contribute less to the waste stream. We get “hands-on” with tons of techniques for pulverizing pumpkins into pieces, including the Gallagher mallets, Louisville Sluggers, the Trebuchet launcher, and the SlingShot. No matter the smash technique you choose, you will contribute to the continuance of a community-wide composting crusade. This year’s event on Saturday, November 4th will be our 9th Annual Pumpkin SMASH, and we will have plenty of food and drinks, contests, raffles, games, and opportunities to learn about composting and other ways to live more sustainably. The event is FREE for kids to attend and all are welcome. Bring your own Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkins from Halloween to be SMASHed! There will also be leftover pumpkins for sale – so just show up ready to SMASH!
