Join us the day of Haunted Happenings for Shelburne Museum’s First Annual Mini Punkin Chunkin, 10 am – 1 pm!
What’s a Mini Punkin Chunkin? It’s where brilliant minds put their collective brains together in order to launch pumpkins through the air via a trebuchet (a type of catapult used to launch projectiles – like pumpkins)! On Sunday, October 29, during Shelburne Museum’s annual Haunted Happenings Family Day we will be hosting our first ever Mini Punkin Chunkin, with demonstrations at 10:30 am and 12:30 pm.
Shelburne Museum invites young and old, experienced chuckers’ and novices alike, to get creative and show the town what happens when science meet squash. This whimsical competition is open to teams of up to 8 individuals. Everyone is encouraged to participate – civic organizations, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4H’ers, local school groups, neighbors or families – and show off their engineering skills. There are two divisions: Junior for participants under the age of 17 and Adult. Each division is limited to 5 teams so early registration is encouraged! Registration will end on October 23 or when all spots are full. Pre-registration is required along with a signed waiver. To register and view more information please visit:
