The Great Pumpkin Race

12:30 PM

The Great Carbondale Pumpkin Race is a chance to have fun and raise money for local charities and non-profit organizations by designing, building, and racing your very own Pumpkin Racer! The event is free, with the winner of the free races cashing in on $100 grand prize.

Extra Information: This year our featured race is The Mayer Branding Grand Prix. The grand prix race has a $10 entry fee with a $250 grand prize, but most people just race for the fun of it. This year’s event features Diane Daugherty as our honorary judge with our very own Olympian, Deanna Price, wielding the Mallet-O-Justice as the rule enforcer and pumpkin smasher. We also welcome Dave Davis from Channel 3 as our master of ceremony. Make sure your pumpkin is race ready! Build the fastest racer you can, or go nuts with the most original design you can think of! Cheaters never prosper, but in this case, watching your cheater pumpkin racer being smashed to smithereens by the Mallet-O-Justice is a pretty rewarding sight and lots of fun for everyone.

Location: Mill Street Underpass
