The Ephrata Merchants Association is hosting the first Mini Punkin Chunkin Contest Oct. 20. The contest will take place in the parking lot behind the Ephrata Chamber office and the new Whistle Stop Plaza. This event is free and for all ages. prizes will be awarded for reaching the goal.
The challenge will begin at 11 a.m., and the goal is to launch the mini pumpkin 50 meters into a plastic wading pool. Pre-registration is encouraged at the hospitality booth located at the Whistle Stop Plaza (Ephrata Chamber Office). Contestants may register online at ephartamerchants.com or the day of the event.
Not up for the challenge? This is not the only way to have fun. Guests may show their creative side and Make and Take a Scarecrow (limited to the first 50 patrons). The association will supply the stand and all materials to create the yard decorations.
Not so creative but like to eat? A pumpkin whoopie pie eating contest will be held, and Rebecca’s Heavenly Goodies and Uncle Jerry’s Kettle Korn will be there to satisfy visitors’ cravings.
Those who just like to enjoy spending time outside in the gorgeous fall weather may take a stroll up and down Main Street and stop into the stores to vote on the best decorated scarecrow. They may show their support for students attending classes at HeArt of Friendship ART Gallery that spent several days painting the merchants windows to bring in the holiday season.
Other events going on during the evening will include Country Conjuring, Back Porch Magic of Eric Hershey from 10 to 11 a.m., live music and pumpkin bowling.
For all of the details, visit the hospitality booth the day of the event.
