Are You Ready For Some Pumpkin Smashing Fun?
Fall hasn’t even officially arrived yet and everywhere you turn coffee shops are breaking out the Pumpkin Spiced drinks. Don’t get us wrong, PLS (pumpkin spice lattes) are delicious, but if you get sick of all the pumpkins before winter officially consumes fall, then channel your inner teenager and smash those pumpkins! Farms around Georgia have gotten creative in their destruction of this beloved gourd, sling shots, hammers, and pumpkin tossing contests are only the beginning of the pumpkin demolition that will be taking place come November.
Rocking R Ranch
It may be just over an hour away from Atlanta, but trust us, it is worth the drive. Mark your calendars for November 5th, also known as Pumpkin Destruction Day! We recommend advanced ticket purchase and arriving early because this place can fill up fast. Bring your own pumpkins or buy some on site and get ready for a pumpkin smashing good time. At Rocking R Ranch they encourage “guests to destroy pumpkins in nearly every way imaginable.” Visit Their Website
North Georgia Zoo and Farm
While the pumpkin smashing is on the tamer side up at the North Georgia Zoo and Farm it is geared more towards education and enrichment. Find out what animals can do with pumpkins and help toss pumpkins in with the animals. Come any time between November 5th-13th to learn a lesson or two in pumpkins and animal care.
