Bloomington Pumpkin Launch

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

Not a builder? Not to worry! There is plenty to do and see at the Pumpkin Launch, including a children's area with a variety of activities, live music, food vendors, and the festive feel of fall. Bring a lawn chair and be amazed by launch device ingenuity!
