Pumpkin Chunkin Festival in Pearland

Shepherd of the Heart United Methodist Church will host the Pumpkin Chunkin Festival on Saturday, October 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Pearland.

Unleash the power of a giant medieval-style siege weapon that will chunk farther than a football field. Take your best shot at choosing the precise pumpkin to launch then pull the trigger on the 34-foot tall siege engine.

Lakes of Savannah residents can bring the entire family with fun and entertainment for everyone, including a pumpkin patch, music, food, inflatable games, pony rides, face painting, a dunking booth, carnival games and barrel train rides. There will also be a children's costume contest and the 2012 Pumpkin Chunkin Champion crowning.

Tickets are not required and the event is free. The festival will take place at Shepherd of the Heart, 12005 County Road 59, Pearland. 

The Pumpkin Chunkin Festival is a community outreach mission sponsored by Shepherd of the Heart since 2008. For more information, call 713-436-5080 or visit www.sothpearland.org.
