Pumpkin Launcher 2007 Pumpkin launch devices must be mechanical in nature.Fall has arrived and pumpkins are flying in the skies over the Monroe County Fairgrounds! Launcher teams send pumpkins soaring through the air in competitions for both accuracy and distance, so get a team together to build and enter a pumpkin launching device. In addition to the pumpkin launching, there is an expanded children's area with a variety of activities, live music, and a variety of food vendors! Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a fun fall afternoon.

Face painting is offered, for an additional fee, by Extreme Face Painting. Other children's activities include pumpkin launching science fun courtesy of WonderLab and a make-your-own first aid kit station by event sponsor MedExpress Urgent Care.

Games and an inflatable obstacle course are provided by the Indiana Army National Guard.

Hear live bluegrass music by the White Lightning Boys from 11:15 a.m.-noon. Antique engines and tractors are also on display during the event.
