Clayton Chamber Plans Ahead For October's 'Punkin Chunkin'
The Clayton Chamber of Commerce is planning ahead to its "Punkin Chunkin' and Barbecue Festival" this fall.
Mike Strouse says the chamber wants to give people plenty of time to plant their pumpkins so they can be tossed into the St. Lawrence River by a catapult-like device called a trebuchet.
The chamber will also have a trebuchet-building class in July.
In addition to chunkin' punkins, there will be a Kansas-style barbecue contest.
It will be October 20 at the waterfront in downtown Clayton.
