Bloomington Pumpkin Launch

Fall has arrived and pumpkins are flying through the skies over the Monroe County Fairgrounds! Launcher teams send pumpkins soaring through the air in competitions for accuracy and distance. Get a team together to build and enter a pumpkin launching device! 

Not a builder? Not to worry! Watch pumpkins fly through the air during the competitions, and see them splatter to the ground when we drop them from a bucket truck. There is plenty more to do and see at the Pumpkin Launch, including a children's area with fall and science-related activities by WonderLab, live music, food vendors, and the festive feel of fall. Bring a lawn chair, sit back, and be amazed by launch device ingenuity!
