Pumpkin season is officially underway and to celebrate, local farms are pulling out all the stops.
Wickham Farms in Penfield celebrated everything pumpkin at the "Punkin' Fest" Saturday.
Activities included chainsaw wood carving, pumpkin painting and hayrides. The main feature, however, was the launching of pumpkins by the reigning world champions of Punkin' Chunkin', a sport in which pumpkins are catapulted thousands of feet in a competition.
Pumpkins were launched every thirty minutes for four hours.
"Our tagline is Farm Fresh Family Fun. We grow a lot of pumpkins, we sell a lot of pumpkins and I just think this fits perfect, it's a beautiful for people to be out doing fall stuff," said Bill Wickham, Wickham Farms Owner.
Wickham Farms also features a corn maze, jumping pillow, mini golf, batting cages and a train ride for kids.
