The event is still a couple months away, but it's not too soon to get ready for Clayton's 2nd annual Punkin' Chunkin' and BBQ Festival.
Organizer Mike Strouse says it's important for participants to register by August 31 to make sure there's enough room for everyone.
The event itself will be October 19 and involves people using trebuchets to catapult pumpkins into the St. Lawrence River.
The festival raises money for local charities.
