Smashing pumpkins in Stillwater

Is there anything better than raising a giant pumpkin with a crane and then letting it drop to watch it smash to pieces?

No, Stillwater, there isn’t.

Over the weekend, Stillwater was ground zero for pumpkin-smashing, the Stillwater Current says.

Each weighed over 1,000 pounds.

The events were part of Stillwater’s Harvest Fest.
