The Tucson Pumpkin Toss holds a hurling competition every Fall on the University of Arizona Mall, using different types of catapults to throw pumpkins for distance and accuracy.
Our objective is primarily educational, harnessing the pure fun of throwing things which explode on impact, to teach math, science, engineering and teamwork.
Fun and learning for all!
Come join the fun!
