What do you get when you mix catapults and pumpkins? 'Punkin Chunkin' and it's quickly becoming an art form in upstate New York.

Every fall, Chunkin enthusiasts gather in Clayton, New York for the annual 'Punkin Chunkin Contest,' where groups bring their homemade contraptions to see who can launch a pumpkin the farthest into the St. Lawrence River.

The Punkin Chunkin' is set for Saturday October 19th at the Clayton Marina in Frink Park. Youth Chunkin kicks off at 11am and adult Chunkin is at 1pm. There's even a BBQ tasting contest this year at 2pm.
