Pumpkin Drop (All ages) Let's go "monster green" after Halloween! Bring in pumpkins (1/person) to Community Park's sled hill and watch them soar, roll, and compost — it's green and helps the environment. The ever popular "BIG RED" trebuchet/catapult designed and built by Mundelein High School students is on hand for the "launching" of pumpkins. Children preregistered by Oct. 26 will be entered into a launch drawing, with 20 winners launching on the day of the event. The distance of the 20 will be measured and the winner receives a special prize. Note: Remove all materials from inside pumpkin. Pre-registration is encouraged and only pumpkins from participants will be accepted.
